The board education has been developed by CBS Board Education in close collaboration with Danish Business Angels, experienced CBS professors, board members, business angels and founders as well as advisors from EY, and Kromann Reumert in the faculty team.
Being a board member and investor in startups and scaleups is an important and challenging task.
The company's interest and long-term value creation can be difficult to keep in focus in the boardrooms; there can be uncertainty about strategy, uncertainty about the next round of financing and confusion in the role distribution between founders, the board and investors.
Danish Business Angels has in collaboration with CBS Board Education developed a board education for business angels and other board members in startups and scaleups.
The board education focuses on models and tools that promote value-creating board work, which are based on knowledge and experience of the board's most important tasks, issues and dilemmas in startup and scaleup companies.
The participants become part of a learning process with teaching teams consisting of professors, business angels, board members and founders, who inspire and challenge the participants based on case discussions from the startup and scaleup environment.
The teaching consists of 6 modules with a total of 3 days of teaching.
Day 1: Tuesday 17 January 2023 at 09.00-17.30
Day 2: Wednesday 18 January 2023 at 09.00-18.30
Day 3: Wednesday 8 February 2023 at 09.00-17.30

Teaching and discussions in groups and plenary meetings are facilitated by CBS professors, experienced board members and business angels as well as advisors from Kromann Reumert and EY. The program uses a large number of experience-based cases, which have been developed specifically for the tea program. There is room for 35 on the team, and participants can expect to meet 14–18 teachers on the course.
There will be two professors from CBS who are consistent all three days. In addition, there will be training from experienced board members and partners with whom CBS has a collaboration. The group of professors who are associated with the program and who have helped to develop the program are Tom Jacobsgaard, who is also the director of the CBS Board programs; Thomas Ritter, Ken L. Bechmann and Kasper Meisner.
Experienced board chairmen and board members who are affiliated with CBS include: Anne Broeng, Julie Galbo, Jørgen Bardenfleth, Jørgen Buhl Rasmussen, Michael Moesgaard Andersen, Peter Torstensen, Rikke Kjær Nielsen, Rikke Stampe Skov, Sahra Josephine Hjort and Sanne Lønskov Mansfeld Giese.
The teachers from Kromann Reumert are Torben Waage, Maria Holst Levin and Peter Gath from EY.
DanBAN contributes to teaching and facilitation with experienced business angels such as Gregers Kronborg, Poul Carstensen, Søren Jørgensen, Charlotte Aaby Smidt, Ole Andersen and a number of other profiles.
The education is primarily aimed at business angels, but it has value for everyone who has an ambition to work professionally with board work in startups and scaleups e.g. founders, venture capital managers, family offices, as well as advisors closely linked to the environment.
Participants typically demand tools and knowledge to enhance value-creating board work, which they can combine with their own experiences from startups and scaleups.
