Mentoring


​​Introduction
At Startup Evo, we view mentoring as the most critical component of becoming a successful startup. The most successful founders and entrepreneurs utilize mentoring as a tool for themselves, and to shape the direction of their businesses.  When you spend time with a quality mentor, you are able to see things from another perspective and garner a vast amount of knowledge and expertise in a rather short period of time. 


Mentoring Benefits
  • Mentors will listen to your ideas, and give you honest feedback and guidance.

  • Bounce off ideas and business initiatives, and recieve constructive criticism.

  • Help prepare you for critical meetings with investors, high net-worth individuals and potential acquirers. 

  • Mentors will talk you through your pain points and worries, and share their experiences of dealing with similar situations.

  • Mentors suggest practical ways to help solve your problems, or point you in the direction of useful resources.

  • Receive expert advice in various industries and fields.

  • Strategic support and thinking from experienced leaders.

  • Build and grow your professional network.

  • Improve your communication and networking skills.


Engagement
Each month Startup Evo will send out a newsletter with a synopsis of our newest companies, updates from existing companies, and the latest news from the program.  Mentors who find a company that interests them may contact us to arrange a meeting. All new companies will have access to our mentor list and will also be able to arrange meetings.​
