FAQ - Frequently asked questions
Finding the right companies to partner with and obtain board or advisory roles can be both challenging and time-consuming. Often candidates and companies can miss each other due to a lack of knowledge of each other’s needs. Although some turn to networking or board training to improve their chances, this isn’t always enough.
At CVX Ventures, we regularly offer presentations by growth companies that are actively seeking competencies for their boards or advisory boards. Our approach ensures efficient match-making processes that help you find and get the right job quickly.
If you possess industry-specific knowledge, strategic, commercial, organizational, or financial skills, you are what growth companies are looking for. What matters is your passion for making a strategic difference and helping shape the growth successes of the future.
We have a broad and versatile approach, being industry agnostic. From aerospace, robotics, and software to furniture manufacturing and B2C platforms, our portfolio continues to evolve. The companies we work with range from start-ups to established businesses with annual revenues in the hundreds of millions.
There are some similarities, but also several differences between the board of directors and the advisory board.
Both the advisory board and the board of directors aim to improve corporate governance and performance, and can be run in a similar way. However, there are also some differences between the two.
The advisory board provides advice, while the board has wide-ranging powers, including overriding the CEO’s decisions if necessary. Members of advisory boards have no legal or financial responsibility, unlike board members who bear some responsibility and are subject to legal obligations. This means that board members also need insurance, while advisory board members usually do not.
Meeting preparation and frequency of meetings can vary, but in general, board meetings require more in-depth preparation and may have a set meeting frequency compared to advisory boards. With greater responsibility and work intensity on boards often comes greater compensation than on advisory boards.
To become a board member in the CVX portfolio, you must first and foremost be able to make a real difference to the company and have good chemistry with the management of the individual company and other members of the board or advisory board. In addition, it requires that you are part of CVX’s network and that after presenting a company, you have shown interest in the role and engaged in an in-depth dialog with the company where you have agreed on a collaboration. CVX can help structure the process and also provide advice on contracts and compensation.

CVX can help structure the process and also provide advice on contracts and compensation.
There is always remuneration for advisors or board members and this will typically consist of fees, sweat equity, or a combination of the two.
It can vary greatly from company to company and can be anything from a few hours on a monthly schedule up to 1 working day on a weekly basis depending on the individual member and company. It’s rare in CVX for members to be at the high end, and it will typically be in connection with demanding chairman positions that require something more. The time spent is usually defined at the beginning of the contract and can be changed on an ongoing basis by mutual agreement.
The companies are primarily spread across Denmark, secondarily Sweden and Norway, while in some cases we also work with companies outside of Scandinavia.
It is not necessary to have board training to be a CVX partner, and there are many value-creating board members who have not taken board training. It is also not a legal requirement to have a board education to sit on either boards or advisory boards, but it is of course not a bad idea to take one. Especially when it comes to board work, the legal responsibility also means that some people feel more confident by getting an education first.
