By Rupert Jupp, Founder & Managing Partner of Princedale Partners
We are delighted to be working with a group of international private equity firms, where we are building a Digital Advisory Board to support the investment Partners internationally.
In this case the Partners are all too aware that there is a knowledge gap when it comes to cutting edge technology and digital applications that can considerably help their investments become more efficient. Subjects cover: cybersecurity, blockchain beyond money transfer, AI & robotics to name but a few.
We have the great privilege of talking to experts based as far and wide as San Francisco, L.A, Boston, Israel, Berlin, Hong Kong and Helsinki and this serves as a neat reminder that there are no borders when it comes to where digital talent is located.
We’re taking a novel approach with this assignment in that from the 12 recommendations we make, the preferred choices will be invited to the firm’s annual global off-site meeting, where they will host round-tables and share their specific expertise in interactive discussions with the private equity Partners.
After the event, the Partners will invite those that made the biggest impact, to establish a Board of Digital Advisors that will be remunerated to be on-hand for ongoing advice to the Partners and their investments CEO’s across US, South America, Europe, India and Asia.
It’s a refreshing approach and one that clearly benefits both sides of the hiring process.
If your business would be interested in building a Digital Advisory Board or you are considering appointing a Digital Non-Executive Director, get in touch. We know some rather good people.
