There have probably been countless times in your life that you’ve leaned on someone you trust for their advice or their help. These people can shape your present situation or your future opportunities. It’s important to seek out the right people for such an important role in your life and in your business.

Developing relationships between mentors and entrepreneurs have numerous benefits on both sides. Both parties learn new things, expand their network, and grow as professionals. However, entrepreneurs should make it a top priority to begin rounding up their trusted advisors and begin taking their advice into account.

This session is a great opportunity to listen to experienced mentors about the startup journey. Every mentor has gone through successes and trails that have shaped their businesses path. Hearing and learning about what they have learned and honed as their craft and how to leverage their experience will help guide your company to success.

During this webinar, you will meet some of BoomStartup’s most colorful mentors who have extensive experience in business creation, funding, optimization, and exits. They will share their stories with you and then we’ll have an open Q&A so you can have the opportunity to ask questions that could benefit your company’s growth.

We will feature different mentors that will speak for a few minutes about their lesson, followed by a Q&A.
