What to expect from you as a mentor?
Mentors should be willing to commit some time to support the founders in our program, particularly during the 3 months full acceleration in Spring and Autumn.
Mentors should be open and willing to share their knowledge and experiences (without infringing on any IP or confidentiality, of course!)
Mentors should have expertise in a particular field that is relevant to building a business.
Mentors should not use mentoring sessions as a sales or pitching opportunity; any presentations should have an educational focus and not be selling your services.
