In times of disruption, venturing becomes a key source of value creation. As new opportunities emerge and existing models fade, entrepreneurs, corporates and investors are eager to explore and exploit those opportunities. Venture governance, i.e. defining, implementing and following a fit-for-purpose model to provide direction and control in the best interest of all stakeholders, plays a crucial role in enabling and ensuring entrepreneurial value creation.

 

This book presents twelve perspectives on the governance of ventures, bringing together viewpoints from both practitioners and academics. It provides practical insights, introduces new perspectives and invites the reader – whether a member of a venture board, an entrepreneur or an investor – to reflect on their own approaches to venture governance.
