Working with Mentors
Every venture is unique in its status, needs, trajectory and priorities. There is no single set process; your mentoring program will be custom crafted on-the-fly. Sessions tend to fall into one of the following categories:
- Brainstorming – free-wheeling sessions to explore concepts and alternatives.
- Targeted - focused on solving a particular question or problem. For example, the critique of your investor pitch.
- One-on-one – used to provide guidance on very narrow issues, such as financial projections, technical questions, or the review of patent and intellectual property positions.
- Reviews and Updates – meetings to keep us up to speed during those periods when you are in an execution phase.
Remember: We provide advice and guidance; you provide the “do”. This is your business venture, not ours. The decisions and execution are up to you.
