Building a great company requires a village. A board of advisors, a seasoned entrepreneur, a coach and a board of directors are examples of individuals that can add great value. Assisting companies and management through the mentor’s experiences mitigates mistakes in strategy and execution. Helping a company get to the right answer quicker and better derives better results for the stakeholders.

Identifying these mentors, their interests and expertise within an ecosystem enhances the likelihood of connecting with that talent in a systematic way. Seeing more candidates typically makes for decision making.
