Mary Olayinka is an entrepreneur in the health sector for over 7 years. I just concluded a mentoring program with Cherie Blair Foundation where I was opportune to mentor Citra, who is based in Indonesia. The one-year period provided clarity and helped scale up her business of bed linen. I am interested in sharing my knowledge with early-stage startups in any part of the world that is fluent in English. This could be narrowed down to Africa, Europe, and Asia. My interest is in the health, textiles, and manufacturing industry.

Mentorship motivation

  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

Most start-ups have the idea but lack a map of the directions. I believe this can be prevented when there is a mentor. I had to stumble through this stage and made a lot of mistakes along the way because I did not have a mentor at that time.
