What are common side-effects from not using Bosware?
Help us save the world from these nasty anti-patterns.
Your Board is Out of Sync
This happens more than anyone wants to admit. If you are running quarterly cadence, it becomes too easy for Board members to lose context.
Your Corporate Records are MIA
Awkward, but true: we've seen companies with top law firms and VCs go *years* without proper minutes, which can create personal liability exposure.
You Never Actually Read 'Startup Boards'
You often think about buying the Startup Boards book. But when you need it at 3am on a Sunday when your Board deck is due, it's too little too late.
Your Meetings are Report-Outs
You Board meetings become one-way conversations with your Board. It feels kinda like you're delivering a book report. Nobody really enjoys these.
Written Consents Are Annoying
Written electronic consents take weeks to complete because you're hounding the legal associate and chasing random DocuSign links.
You Are Running a Help Desk
It's really annoying when Board members ask for something you sent out previously. But when your Board file system is email, what do you expect?

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Board OS anyway? Did you make this up?
No. There is a well-established category of 'Board Management Software' (88+ companies on G2 crowd). Public companies and non-profits regularly use what is called a 'board portal'.
The problem was that none of the existing platforms were a good fit for Startups (ie our need for speed). So we made Bosware.
Don't Boards work fine without software?
Not really. Most Boards 'work' in the sense you spend 3-6 hours a couple times per year talking about the business.
But are you getting 100% of the potential value from the time, energy, and money you've invested in this? Can you make better decisions, faster?
Bosware is about going from [x]% to 100%. If your X is under 100, you might be missing out.
Don't Diligent or Carta have something similar?
Sure - give them a try! You'll be back though.
Here's why: neither of those companies are 100% obsessively focused on Startup Boards. Diligent is mostly focused on large public companies. Carta is focused on being a marketplace your shares.
As a result, neither company has produced anything that a Startup Board will actually love. That's our singular focus. May the best product win!
Can only Delaware corporations use Bosware?
No - any corporation (with a Board) can get value from Bosware.
We did design around Delaware corporation law (DGCL) in how we manage and store corporate records.
But we do have non-DE corporations on the platform.
Like everything, you should always consult your attorney to confirm the compliance requirements in your jurisdiction.
Is Bosware a fit for my Non-Profit & Public boards?
Nope! We are 100% focused on Startups. Why so narrowly focused? Because we want to make the absolute best product for our customers.
Non-profit and public Boards are different beasts from Startup Boards. We are never going to let that cloud our product vision or priorities.
To our beloved customers, that is our pledge: we will always be true.
Is this designed for Companies or Investors?
We have explicitly designed with *Founder-CXOs* as our customer #1. It's the company that pays our bills, and the company that we serve.
That said, Investor-Directors get a lot of value from having multiple portfolio companies / Boards running Bosware.
