Realize your Potential with a Mentor

No matter what stage you are in your career, a Mentor will help you realize your full potential. At TiEcon, we have assembled highly accomplished entrepreneurs / professionals to be Mentors. They are investing their time, energy and personal know-how to assist in the growth of the mentees who choose them.

None of us are born “gifted” or with a “skill set”. We are already born with every gift that we need to succeed. More over, skill sets are time bound. They are not eternal. We need to constantly re-invent ourselves. We all know that hindsight is 20-20. With the right mentor, their hindsight becomes your 20-20. Since they have “been there and done that”, they can help you avoid making costly mistakes. In a sense, they provide you a “forward-view mirror” and provide a perspective of what to expect ahead.

Before you seek a Mentor, have an interpersonal conversation to discern your true weaknesses. A Mentor can help you complement these weaknesses with their strengths. They understand what it takes to become great – because they have done it themselves. They can help you navigate the tough choices that you face.

To participate in MentorConnect during TiEcon 2021, include the MentorConnect Add-on for $29 (free for TiE members) when you register for the conference. Once you do this, you will be given the opportunity to select a mentor from a cross section of luminaries with diverse industry expertise. The allocation of Mentors will be strictly done on a first-come-first-serve basis. The complete list of mentors can be seen from the page: https://www.tiecon.org/mentor-connect. We are striving to add more mentors each day.

We will be posting additional blogs on dos-and-don’ts during a Mentoring session, what to expect from your Mentor, etc. as the conference date approaches.

We wish you the very best in your entrepreneurial endeavors.
