Frequently Asked Questions.

What are the terms of a corporate subscription?

The annual corporate subscription fee starts at $15,000.

The average fee to retain an executive recruitment firm for a board search often exceeds $100,000 – per board member.

Your BoardProspects subscription covers one year of unlimited searches and appointments. There are no success fees.

Do you have enough candidates with the credentials we're seeking?

Schedule a demo and let us show you the amazing depth of diversity among the thousands of board candidates within the BoardProspects community.

We don’t have any current board openings. Why should our company subscribe to BoardProspects?

More than 75% of new corporate subscribers to BoardProspects do not have a current board opening.

The majority of corporate board seats which become available each year are unplanned (health issues, conflicts of interest, new commitments, etc.). It is critical that nominating committees stay active year-round building a pipeline of potential board candidates.

The BoardProspects platform provides all the tools and resources to create, maintain and track a list of candidates from our community who will add value to your board when an opening becomes available.

Can BoardProspects help our growing company form an Advisory Board?

Yes. The BoardProspects platform will not only help you identify and connect with world-class advisory board members and provide a sample agreement, but it will also help identify the appropriate compensation of such members and the overall structure for the advisory board meetings (ex. agenda, and length/frequency of meetings).

Are candidates interested in board roles with small private companies?

Yes. Although a small number of our candidates (less than 2%) limit themselves to board opportunities with publicly traded corporations, the overwhelming majority of our board candidates are interested in board opportunities with private corporations, including startups.

What makes BoardProspects different than an executive recruitment firm?

Cost. The average fee to retain an executive recruitment firm for a board search often exceeds $100,000 – per board member. The subscription to BoardProspects is a fraction of the fees charged by an executive recruitment firm, and we do not charge success fees.

Engagement. The retention of an executive recruitment firm for a board search is episodic. BoardProspects engages your Nominating Committee throughout the year to not only keep you apprised of board composition trends within your industry, but also help you build a board candidate pipeline -- both of which are considered corporate governance best practices.

Many larger corporations leverage both an executive recruitment firm and a corporate subscription to BoardProspects to mitigate the risk of relying solely upon any one source to find the right board candidate. The nominating committees of these corporations use our platform throughout the year to create a list of potential board candidates from our community. When a corporation is ready to retain an executive recruitment firm for a board search, the nominating committee can provide the firm with a report from BoardProspects which lists the candidates the committee has already identified through our community.

Why shouldn't we solely recruit from our own network?

At BoardProspects, effective board recruitment is based on the fundamental premise that a company and its stakeholders deserve to have the absolute best people possible around the boardroom table.

The “who do you know?” conversation has substantial downsides, one being that it severely limits the board candidate pool to the networks of the current board members.

In addition to often thinking (and looking like) the board member who recruited them, this process can also result in conflicted loyalties — ie. is the new board member more loyal to the board member who recruited them, or to the stakeholders?

Can our company remain anonymous on BoardProspects?

Yes. We understand that corporations may not want to reveal their identity on our platform. Therefore, corporations have the option to remain completely anonymous and only reveal themselves to the candidate(s) when they are ready.

“Year-round insight into the board recruitment landscape.”

"The BoardProspects platform provides our Nominating Committee with year-round insight into the board recruitment landscape and gives us the tools we need to be much more proactive and forward-thinking when it comes to board succession. We would absolutely recommend BoardProspects to our colleagues in the corporate director world.“

Nominating Committee Chair at Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE: NLS)
