Startup Mentors — How Do You Filter Out The Good, The Bad And The Ugly? | Ideas, Innovation & Start-ups | Scoop.it

In light of the recent brouhaha over the actions of a particular European investor who had a habit of attaching himself to accelerators as a ‘mentor’, it seems an appropriate time to do a quick rundown on the kinds of things entrepreneurs need to look for in genuine potential mentor to them and their companies.

Craig Stark's curator insight, September 1, 2014 12:07 PM

Excellent discussion about how to select an appropriate mentor to suit your current stage of business development. Mentors shouldn't immediately be added to a payroll or equity plan and should be performance based.

 

I can't stand the posers who approach teams as mentors then try to become "vulture capitalists" locking up the company for personal gain.

"Sharing insight on a topic you're well versed in"... This is so fundamental to being a Thought Leader.


Shana Starr lists five steps. I subscribe to all of them.


I'd add content curation to them: finding, acknowledging and sharing great content created by others also contributes to demonstrating your expertise and willingness to share; a legit and effective addition to writing; a necessary skill of Thought Leaders.


1. Clarify your purpose

2. Identify your voice

3. Write

4. Build an active online presence

5. Be a mentor.


Great post, wise advices.

Craig Stark's curator insight, September 1, 2014 12:34 PM
