I would have the board approve CEO salary, all material expenses (>$5k-$10k), and an overall CEO expense policy.
In a startup, the reality is a CEO can probably do almost anything she wants. It’s hard for the investors to really police most activity or even be aware of a lot of it.
But transparency builds trust.
Get everything approved by the Board.
