I’m being exposed to some opportunities to act as a mentor to young companies (as opposed to an official advisor to the company), and I thought it would be useful to jot down what I am looking for in this role.
What I am looking for in the companies I hope to mentor:
interesting - I’m interested in the use of technology to solve problems.
viable - I have to think the company has a good idea that can become a viable business
impactful - I want to help companies that make a difference
nice people - obviously, I want to help people that I like working with
