Getting the Most Out of The Mentor-Mentee Relationship

Startups need the support of experienced entrepreneurs and professionals who have "been-there, done-that"; also known as mentors. Mentors help guide burgeoning entrepreneurs through the in's and out's and growing pains of starting a successful company. They are there to provide advice and support (or a kick in the pants) and can help open doors and make introductions when needed. The mentor-mentee collaboration is an invaluable relationship and one that should not be taken for granted. Join a panel of mentors and mentees (and mentees-turned-mentors) - hosted by DreamIt Ventures - for a candid conversation and Q&A about the pro's and con's of the relationship. During this conversation you'll gain insight into how to partner with the right mentor (or company) and how take advantage of the relationship so it is mutually beneficial and moves the company forward.
(DreamIt is looking to do 1/2 day, 3 sessions so we have submitted several proposals)
