Boardwork and Corporate Governance for Fintech Startups


How to create even more high-growth, successful fintech companies with global ambitions? What are the keys to unlocking the massive potential in fintech? Some of the decisive factors are high-performing boards and sound corporate governance principles.

To be a board director of a fintech startup is an important and inspiring, yet challenging task. Company interest and value creation are challenging to keep in focus in board rooms when there is ambiguity regarding strategy, uncertainty regarding future financing, and dilemmas in the roles of the board of directors, founders, investors, and the executive team.

Copenhagen Fintech and CBS Board Education has co-created a board education for fintech startup board members, company owners and members of the executive management team. This board education is based on knowledge and experience from fintech board rooms and provides models and tools regarding the board’s role, best practices, dilemmas, and challenges – all aimed at promoting value creation and sustainable growth of fintech startups. The participants will take part in case-based learning processes in a peer-to-peer teaching format where faculty composed of professors, experienced chairs, and board members as well as advisors will inspire and challenge participants on their experience, knowledge, and considerations.

Studies show that companies with professional board work and focus on the interaction between owners, board, and management are able to grow faster, increase yield and realize more relevant market opportunities. It is an essential competency to fintech startup board members to gain knowledge about the corporate governance system, value creation, company law, and board dynamics.

This board education program is developed by CBS Board Education in close collaboration with Copenhagen Fintech and experienced CBS Professors, board members, Fintech startup investors and founders, and partners from EY and Kromann Reumert.
