New/Existing Mentors, Managers, Funds, and Markets.

At 4M, we believe there are four components that bring success to emerging companies: Money, Markets, Mentors, and Management.

So what do you need to get where you want to go? Yes, you need money. But you need to know about your markets; who are your customers? What do they need now, what will they need later? Whether you are a first-time or seasoned entrepreneur, you’ll need general or industry-specific advice. You’ll need mentors. And you’ll likely need some type of management, people who can steer the ship while you create your strategy. 4M is your bridge to success.
