Software Boards Report - Industry Backgrounds
Software company board members have diverse industry experience
Fast-growth software companies also report a wide range of industry experience on their board. The most common are computer software, financial services and consulting. But board members with experience in the automotive industry, metals, education, healthcare, and entertainment industries have also found a place on the board of directors at software companies in the $100 million to $1 billion range. This suggests that fast-growth software companies value perspectives from outside the computer software and hardware industry.
