Many entrepreneurs only seek out mentors for their companies when they decide they want funding. But, mentors need to be weaved into the fabric of any startup from the beginning. Great mentors see something special in you, and help you reach your potential both with direct advice as well as introductions, resources, and helping you think things through. In this session, you’ll learn: 

Why having a mentor is so important
How to find and approach a mentor that will accelerate your success
How to distinguish between a bad and a good mentor
How to build a long-term relationship with your mentors
And, how to keep mentors actively engaged -- which sounds simple, but almost everyone screws it up! 

Capacity: 80
