We are going to talk about...

  • The benefits of a Mentor for Entrepreneurs and why every Founder (and the Team) needs more than one Mentor

  • What makes a good startup mentor (and do you need to have a $$$$-exit to qualify as a dream mentor)

  • Your Investors and Customers as your filter-free mentors

  • Life after completing an Incubator/Accelerator Program: what to do when nobody assigned you a mentor?

  • Equitable mentorship - what if you can’t afford the program?

  • Founder-Founder Mentoring - more than just giving expensive advice

  • Growth Mindset or Failing Forward for Mentors and Mentees - where’s the starter kit for mentoring?

  • Reverse Mentoring - what corporates and governments can learn from startups
