The Board

The Board is a key body within a business that can influence governance. The Board is initially elected by owners/shareholders and later appointed by other board members.  While the board exists to represent shareholders of the MSME, their key value is to support management and business owners by providing insight, strategic direction and, access to business opportunities.
If you want to set up a board for your business, use the toolkit and template as guides.
