Become a Board Member
Leverage your expertise by joining a Board of Directors
Studies have shown that the skill profile of Swiss boards of directors is often unbalanced and expertise in certain areas is either lacking or overly abundant. Many people - yourself included - have the required skills, but there is no direct contact between you and the companies. We have created a matchmaking platform putting you in touch with those companies.
Using our service, you can join the company and add to the board’s skill mix.
You can create an individual profile in our database today. Your profile will be created taking into consideration your potential as a Board member and will be used exclusively for this purpose. After activating your account, companies and institutions can search for your profile and contact you directly. Would you like help developing your profile? We can check your profile and offer feedback for a flat fee of CHF 200.-, or we can help you to create a profile in the system for CHF 200.- / h.
After you have completed the short registration process below, you will be sent a link to verify your email address. Then you can complete your profile by detailing your industry experience, education, interests, etc. After having entered all the relevant data, including your goals regarding a future board mandate, you can activate your account by paying the account fee. By activating your account, you confirm your interest in being found in the VR database. Once paid, you can be found by the companies in our database searching for a board member, for the entire subscription period. You cannot actively search for companies. However, the person responsible for the placement of board members (board of directors committees, foundation board committees, etc.) can find your profile. If there is a mutual interest, the company will contact you to initiate the next steps (personal interview, discussions, assessment, etc.).
To activate your profile, you pay a one-off fee of CHF 200.- at the beginning. You can then choose from various durations right from the start:
3 years: One-time fee of CHF 200.- plus CHF 40.- per year = total CHF 320.-
5 years: One-time fee of CHF 200.- plus CHF 32.- per year = total CHF 360.-
8 years: One-time fee of CHF 200.- plus CHF 30.- per year = total CHF 440.-
You can easily pay by e-banking, credit card or PayPal. After the fee has been paid, your profile becomes visible to companies increasing your chances of finding a board position. Prices are without VAT.
Before your subscription expires, you will be notified by e-mail and given the opportunity to renew your subscription. If you do not wish to renew, your profile will be moved offline, and can no longer be found in the VR database. You can reactivate your account at any time.
At this point, you can start creating your profile: Register.
