P2P Mentoring for Startup Founders
Entrepreneurs seem to be turning to their peers for advice and mentoring. Founders of startups are turning to other startup founders for mentorship. Peer-to-peer (P2P) mentoring is a sort of maturing of the startup ecosystem in India.
Founders connect with each other not on common strengths but for mentoring on common weaknesses. They share synergies and bounce ideas off each other. Areas like hiring, ESOPS, legal issues, office space, customer acquisition are subjects of discussion.
Turning to seniors for advice is necessary but so is turning to your peers. This is where co-working spaces aid entrepreneurs in that they come into contact with their peers.Also alumni associations provide a valuable platform to interact with your peers.
