Does having a board of advisors increase your chances of getting funding?
Or maybe — only barely, a tiny bit.
If you get Larry Page or Marc Benioff to be an active advisor — well, then, you have our attention.
But otherwise, a bunch of headshots of folks with experience in your industry does nothing.
You’re expected to attract some great advisors.
What is interesting is if you have a great, full-time management team already. Or even part of it. An amazing team.
That’s always hard.
