What to look for in a mentor


Danae Shell, founder and CEO of Valla and a mentor with CodeBase, explains what founders should look for in a mentor and the ways they could help.

  • You could work with a mentor even if you’re not sure yet what you’re looking for; or find someone with the specific skillset you need
  • A mentor might help with your strategy, or might just agree to hold you accountable as a form of motivation: there’s a wide spectrum of help that they could offer
  • Mentors should always ask why you’re doing what you’re doing, what challenges you they have right now and what problems you’re facing
