April is Mentorship month at Startup Grind. And though we planned this theme at the beginning of the year, it feels eerily relevant to everything going on in our world today. Mentors are usually seen as pinnacles of wisdom and nurturing. But anyone who's ever had a mentor knows they aren’t just there to cheer you on during the good times. They show up to encourage you during the down times, too. They push you past your comfort zone and help you face things you’d rather not face. And if there’s ever a time to appreciate that type of support, it’s now.
This is the right time to update and upgrade your Skill sets as an Entrepreneur. Explore some Course online or join an acceleration Programme. Polish your Pitch deck or work on Financial Modelling and Valuation Report. Lets understand the Do's and Don'ts from the Industry Experts.
