Mentors make the difference. While there is a ton of "how to turn your idea into a unicorn" advice, it is hard to always know what is right for you, the founder. Your company and your vision may not follow the same path as those before you. Mentors help you pick out the useful advice and information from the avalanche of feedback and suggestions. They help you see what is important and what can wait. We are honored to have a phenomenal set of mentors ready to help the entrepreneurs in our Accelerator Program!
