Mentorship motivation

  • I like to learn about industries and new businesses
  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to make new connections for myself and/or the organization I represent
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

The first and foremost reason is because l believe l have something to give back and support the startup and entrepreneurship ecosystem. I have gained a wealth of experience that l believe could benefit some start ups and entrepreneurs that they may not easily have access to.
In so doing, I will also be able to build my network and make meaningful connections
