Interview with European Corporate Governance Institute

Our hypothesis nine years ago was that the world was moving towards more founder centrism – founder run companies – and that these companies would perform exceptionally well over time, particularly in environments that are highly volatile and require agile decision-making...

The work of the European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI) is exceptionally important in bringing together academics to reason around where the world should go and how corporate governance can perhaps adapt to this new wave of technology companies that are founder run.
