We usually do a 45 minute call with a startup founder as a mentor. Sometimes the startup is looking for help with a particular issue – often it is just a general health check on what they are doing and where they should focus next. The first part of the call is typically getting to know their business model, then we dig into their questions or probe around for current difficulties. Then we can often suggest a few things to try or even a book to check out.
The mentoring tends to work best when some history can be built between the startup and the mentor so we can dig deeper and follow up on ideas that have been explored. Often this results in a call once every 6-8 weeks. If this continues and there is a good fit between the mentor and the startup then it may make sense to become an official advisor and investor in the company.
If you are interested in trying a mentoring session with LogicBoost Labs then please contact us. There is no cost although we may decline the meeting if we don’t think there is a good fit.
Learn from others
It is faster to learn from someone else's experiences than to do trial and error yourself. Experience makes a difference.
Startups often have lots of ideas and know they can do lots of things. But which one should you do next? Where should you be focusing?
When you are doing something for the first time, it is easy to have blind spots and not realize until it is too late. We can help you uncover your blind spots.
