Business Angel news round up: Boards don’t work – crowdfunding, choosing partners and anti-dilution

Business Angel news round up

We’ve got another piece on why company boards don’t work and what to do about it (read the our previous piece on company and startup boards here).

I kind of get the feeling that this just isn’t going to go away – about like executive pay.

A new crowdfunding platform has launched – this one is called Civilised Money– although I’m not sure I want to know what uncivilised money is? I guess this is pointing to the fact that when there are lots and lots of investors it is very hard for anyone investor to control the board or direction of the enterprise? If so, bad news for business angels and venture capitalist.
