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

Mentoring other entrepreneurs or startups helps me give back to the community and leave positive impact in the entrepreneurship ecosystem in our country, Egypt, which reflects positively on our economy on the long term.
It also strengthens my experience because knowledge transfer, sharing experiences, exposure to discussions full of challenges, problem solving and opportunities helps me understand things in a different way and adds to growth mindset which impacts my career progression as well.
