What are Advisors
Advisors typically have a deep knowledge in a subject (SME) or multidisciplinary expertise. A good advising relationship will bring that expertise to a company in a way that helps them succeed. Advisors can work on an informal or formal basis. They can be used as needed, or continually.
Board of Directors and Advisory Boards
Boards of Directors provide oversight to companies. A good board will often include the CEO or founder of the company along with experts covering the sphere of influence of the company.
Advisory boards (such as technical, scientific and medical boards) provide additional, ongoing expertise.
I have worked for many startups and growing companies throughout my career. Many times, my employees or I spent a tremendous amount of energy solving a problem that we knew someone had already solved.
