European Growth Audit Network

High growth companies face unique challenges. Scaling controls and operational structure without crippling the entrepreneurial spirit can be a difficult balancing act. Managing cash flow often becomes a critical concern. It is difficult to build and maintain organizational culture during a time of dynamic change and rapid hiring. Board oversight demands distinctive approaches, which must evolve quickly. Non-executive directors serving on these high-growth companies are keen to learn from their peers about enhancing and improving governance.

To help boards meet these challenges, Tapestry Networks has created the European Growth Audit Network (EGAN), a program of learning and problem-solving aimed at enhancing governance of Europe’s fastest-growing companies. Participation in the network provides non-executive directors with opportunities to benchmark their performance with their peers and to find ways to become more effective in their roles. Members engage with each other and with experts on topics that are highly relevant to their rapidly growing organizations. Confidential, thoughtfully curated discussions enable them to have challenging conversations in a trusted environment.

Tapestry Networks organizes EGAN and leads its meetings, working closely with EY as EGAN’s exclusive sponsor.
