Finding a startup coach. What do you need to consider?

Tal Catran, accelerator Guru from Israel, gives insights about the mentor and start-up relationship. Take a look:

These are Tal's hints:

  • Know what you’re looking for, what you are missing in your team or personal knowledge
  • Chemistry, make sure you see eye to eye
  • Acknowledge your mentor’s capabilities, his expertise, his networking and remember he’s a person like you, he might not deliver on his promise and not jump on live grenade like you do
  • Mentors are not for life, set a specific period of time for your mentor’s consultation
  • Respect your mentor, although you’ll probably won’t pay him (better you pay), show respect
  • and be thankful
