Successful startup founders all have one thing in common - they surround themselves with great mentors. But in many startup communities, mentors are in short supply. This is where you come in.
Join us for this informative session about how you can share your knowledge and experience with founders in a way that works best for them. This is part of a workshop series (first Thursday of every month) co-hosted by #Qualcomm and #Techstars for supporting the Taiwan startup ecosystem.
This is part 7 of a 9 part mentor workshop series. Matt Helt & our special guest, Allen Houng, Startup Business Development Manager at AWS will discuss how to become an Effective Startup Mentor with this part focused on "Hold Information in Confidence. "
Generally, founders are always open and transparent to mentors. In exchange, mentors will hold information in confidence. However, distinguishing what is confidential or secret may be tricky. Let’s see how Matt and Allen deal with this from their past experiences.
