What makes a great mentor?
They are founders of one or more successful technology startups and have been through the same thing you’re going through. They enjoy spending time with other entrepreneurs and thinking about different businesses.
They have a huge network of customers, vendors and employees they can introduce you to. They’re really busy, but make time to meet with you every week and are responsive to your emails and calls.
Capital Factor prides itself in providing the highest quality mentors in the business to help scale your startup.
