The benefits of being a tech startup mentor. by GetViable |
Leslie Barry stashed this in Startups
The tech industry is highly competitive and full of bright and industrious people with innovative ideas. Often these ideas never have the chance to properly develop due to lack of experience and lack of direction. As a mentor, you can offer the benefit of experience, give support, and provide specialist insider’s knowledge of how to effectively take a great start-up idea and give it wings.
What’s in it for the mentor?...
"One of the challenges we see is that mentors are thinly spread across multiple incubators and startup programs, so one of the issues we’re tackling with GetViable is to streamline the mentor/startup relationship to provide a low touch, high value engagement where mentors can best apply their valuable time in the most effective way for a startup to benefit."
