We'll hear from the entrepreneur and venture capital perspective how formal governance is before investors come in, if you have a say on the board members and what to expect from them, namely from independent board members.

The European Champions Alliance is a non-for-profit association co-funded by the Institut G9+ in February 2020 that builds an ecosystem of start-ups, scale-ups, SMEs, corporates and industry experts committed to European Tech and values. The Alliance leverages its European network by sharing market knowledge and activating joint business opportunities between the members to support the growth of European Champions. We do this in several focus groups, for example Cybersecurity, Smart Industry, Mobility, Innovation & Governance and now also Space Tech.
