The start-up ecosystem is challenging. Mentorship will make a big difference to entrepreneurs as they implement their start-ups and find their way around the ecosystem. I was an entrepreneur a few years ago, and I understand the intricacies involved. I am motivated to mentor youth whenever I can. Starting is one thing but sustaining is where the crux of it all lies.
