A well rounded team of superstars will often still have areas of weakness or improvement. In the same vein, advisers play a big role in filling in holes or strengthening areas of weakness for an ICO team. Whether it be an expert in a certain field, or their long history of success and experience, these all become valuable resources for an ICO.
Having a strong experienced board of advisers allows an ICO to use the experience and expertise of these board members in order to advance and grow in the right direction. Knowing that you are backed by veterans who believe in your vision can help boost overall morale and success too.
Here is a feature spotlight on some of Cloudbric’s advisers!
