Setting up the Initial Board of Directors for Dell, Inc.

Michael Dell, Dell, Inc.

Dell talks about how he setup a board of directors to raise capital for Dell, Inc. After initial talks with investors at Goldman Sachs, he was told Dell, Inc. was not ready to go public yet because it was a young company without a board of directors. As a result, he formed a small board that turned out to be very helpful in bringing in capital.
