As a founder, what measures should be taken to retain board control?

I'm another lunatic who belives that my company gonna be another unicorn. My company has good mission and a decent product.

I have never raised funds before. So i'm little scared. Its just I don't want my investor to screw me.

So what are the steps should be taken to retain board control? Is Dual class / super voting stocks enough to retain the borad control always?

Mine is a Delaware Corportion. Single Founder. 


  • Dual class only works when you have an upper hand and that means traction. Otherwise you’re at the mercy of your investors. Basically you decide which is more important. Comfort with other people’s money means losing control vs going hungry longer and retaining control.
