Why a mentor?

They’ve been around the block

They are masters of advice giving

They've got your back

They are always helping you evolve

Accelerate your wisdom

Our mentors empower you with insights by asking you all the right questions.

Calibration

The first step is finding out where a startup stands and what it needs to grow. Our mentors help you navigate all the different forks in the road and make strategic decisions that influence your business model. They do this through an active process of asking the right questions and understanding of what makes you tick as a company.

Knowledge transfer

Our mentors never just tell you what to do. They want you to get there yourself so you can gain a deeper grasp of business sectors and how your sector works. They share all their hard-won insights with you, and then challenge you to follow your own path.

Next steps

The next steps are the ones you take yourself, but our mentors have your back. They will help you translate insights into action in a strategic and measured way. This might involve going back to the drawing board sometimes to tinker with the assumptions challenged during calibration. Or it may just mean taking concrete follow-action right away.
