Stanford’s Rock Center for Corporate Governance teamed up with venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz this year to host a bootcamp for women and minority candidates for venture-backed board service.  Participants in “A Guide to VC-Backed Board Membership” gathered at Stanford Law School in March to learn the nuts and bolts of corporate governance from Stanford Law School faculty and some of Silicon Valley’s top talent. They also had the opportunity to network with peers and participate in a Q&A with key players in Silicon Valley about what really goes on in boardrooms. Sessions were led by Evan Epstein, executive director of the Rock Center; Robert Daines, the Pritzker Professor of Law and Business; and Joseph A. Grundfest, JD ’78, the W.A. Franke Professor of Law and Business and founder of Directors’ College.
