Mentor Series: Effective Startup Mentorship Practices (Part 3) Online

Nov 10, 2020 · ,
Join us for this informative session about how you can share your knowledge and experience with founders in a way that works best for them.

Successful startup founders all have one thing in common - they surround themselves with great mentors. But in many startup communities, mentors are in short supply. This is where you come in.

Join us for this informative session about how you can share your knowledge and experience with founders in a way that works best for them. This is a 4 part online workshop series co-hosted by #StartupVic and #Techstars for supporting the Australian startup ecosystem.

Each mentor workshop series will feature local mentors and a Techstars team. This series will build upon the foundational mentoring suggestions outlined in the Techstars Manifesto. Techstars Co-founder and Managing Partner David Cohen, with the help of Jon Bradford and Brad Feld, wrote Techstars Mentor Manifesto in order to articulate the values and characteristics of mentorship.

Part 3 - Be direct. Tell the truth, however hard
