Mentors act as catalysts for the success of a startup. A lot can happen with the right nurturing at the right time. It’s a waste of resources when entrepreneurs have capabilities but no guidance to channelize their energies. Therefore it is paramount to find the right mentoring for growth and sustainability.
A mentor could be anyone from your family or friend or ex-colleague or your investor. All they need to have is enough expertise, network, and enthusiasm. Hence it is the responsibility of founders to recognize and bring efficient mentors for the growth of the company.
