  • Hi Thomas
    Thanks for the slides. Great presentation.
    One of my big questions is this: how do we add value for the mentors?
    Mentors are a diverse group. Many do it for fun. Lots of service providers do it to meet new clients. Angel investors do it to meet new investments. How do we develop the skills of such a mixed group and how do we provide them value, so that the ecosystem develops and they keep coming back - even when they don't find new customers, investments, and it's not as much fun as it used to be?
