Mentee Etiquette Involving Startups

Sudhir Kale PhD

Thought Leader | Researcher | Consultant | Keynote Speaker

Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

As a professor who has taught on three continents for three decades, I have been fortunate to teach and guide thousands of students across various nationalities. Some students have gone on to create their own successful businesses. I have acted as a formal or informal mentor to several of these entrepreneurs in the early stages of their venture. Since I have been an entrepreneur myself, I can, first-hand, vouch for the enormous value a mentor can provide.

My experience as a mentor has been a mixed bag. Sometimes, it is disheartening to witness a lack of proper demeanor among mentees. Such thoughtless and often unintended behaviors can sour the mentor-mentee relationship, thus depriving the ensuing startup of valuable experience-driven advice. Here are some dos and don'ts for mentees:

  1. Do keep the mentor regularly briefed on what's happening in the business. Even if you and the mentor are geographically separated, it makes sense to jump on a Zoom call and share short weekly updates with your mentor. It is not smart etiquette to get in touch with your mentor only when you are desperate for help.
  2. If you are going to be offering any financial incentives to the mentor, make these explicit in writing and in agreement with the mentor. Stick with your commitments. The mentor may not necessarily need your money, but providing some tangible incentive signals to the mentor that his/her advice is valued and not taken for granted.
  3. Keep proper notes of your discussions with the mentor. It shows that you are taking the relationship and advice seriously.
  4. Unless the mentor has specifically agreed to work with you for free, limit the free "exploratory" sessions you have with the mentor. Remember, every relationship has a certain number of credits, and you have to be careful as to when and how you use your credits.
  5. Limit your number of mentors and advisors. Having too many advisors indicates that you do not have faith in any one advisor. Besides, the more advisors you have, the greater the chances of getting contradictory advice, thus making the murky startup environment even murkier. The functions of mentorship are to provide illumination and support, not to create confusion and chaos.
  6. Involve your mentor in key discussions with venture capitalists and business partners. Having a highly placed mentor makes for a good story, and stories are at least as important in deal making as financial projections.
  7. In cases where the mentor's advice conflicts with you own judgement, go with the mentor's view unless you have compelling rationale not to do so. Remember, the mentor has seen the world for a much longer time frame than you have. Mentors, in the first place, should be chosen on the basis of their ability to navigate through the greys and present the world in black and white for purposes of decision making. They understand business nuances and are usually very good at sensing opportunities and danger.

The world of startups is exciting and potentially very rewarding. It is also fraught with dangers and disasters lurking at every turn. Most startups fail not for lack of trying but because the entrepreneurs are not mindful or well-equipped to deal with the intricacies of new ventures. Good mentors are worth their weight in gold for aspiring entrepreneurs. As John Maxwell observed, "One of the greatest values of mentors is the ability to see ahead what others cannot see and to help them navigate a course to their (entrepreneurial) destination."

It gives me immense pleasure in informing to Global Garje Marathi family that Shri. Sanjay Dhavalikar is appointed as Jt Sec of Hindu Economic Forum.  HEF is Bharat specific arm of The World Hindu Economic Forum (WHEF).

The World Hindu Economic Forum (WHEF) was created to bring together financially successful elements within Hindu society, so that each group can share their business knowledge, expertise and resources with their fellow brethren to trigger the creation of surplus wealth and make society prosperous.

The WHEF journey began in 2012 at Hong Kong, followed by successful annual forums in Bangkok 2013, New Delhi 2014, London 2015, Los Angeles 2016, Chicago 2018, Mumbai 2019 and several regional forums along the way. The next annual forum was scheduled to be held in The Hague, Netherlands from 6-8 July, 2020. But due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the government of Netherlands has restricted public meetings

Banking and Finance expert Sanjay says, “I will majorly focus on Mumbai being financial capital of the country and having maximum contribution to Bharat’s economy and future. That will be my focus area as of now. If Bharat has to reach $5 trillion economy, Mumbai has to play a very critical and important and larger role, which I will focus on”

Sanjay Dhavalikar is one of the founding Director of Garje Marathi Global Foundation, a Not for profit , registered Section ‘8’ company in India.
