Virtual event

About this event

One of the most helpful strategies for developing as an entrepreneur is to learn directly from an experienced mentor. Entrepuners that are new to the game will often have a lot questions and the Internet won’t always have the answer. Yet, a woeful number of entrepreneurs start their careers without one. In an age where instant gratification is glorified, it's unsurprising that many entrepreneurs and young founders do not seek out a mentor as hard as they try to find a co-founder.

in this event, David Lanre Messan shares useful insight on the importance of mentorship, how to cultivate and nurture a profitable mentorship relationship and many more.
