“It would be great if I could support all the 5,000 entrepreneurs in our ecosystem. So I do it at least in a small way through our events. In order to be really helpful and have a significant impact, a mentor needs to understand the full story of the company with it’s long term goals, unique value proposition, the founder’s objectives and more. And so I can only provide meaningful support if I commit to a long term engagement with a team as mentor, board or advisory board member”

Mentor’s Compensation

“Being a significant contributor in building a great company and participating in the success as shareholder is what motivates me to be a mentor. I believe that voluntary help has either no real impact or commitment - or the supporter lacks of the understanding what long term equity development really means.
