Who needs a mentor?
Chloe Holding is the founder of the very early stage startup Habinki. We talked to her about her start-up and why she was looking for a mentor. Here you can find out what happened after we last talked to her.
How did you find the response for the request for a mentor?
"I found the mentoring trial interesting, but also incredibly time consuming and I have found it hard juggling a lot of priorities at the moment."
What did you get from the mentorship till now?
"I think that one gaines a lot of experience and information from every conversation that one has. Certainly just hearing about people out there who have done something similar and lived to tell the tale is incredibly valuable. I certainly enjoyed hearing about other entrepreneurs and the businesses they have managed to establish."
Are you in contact? How, by phone, text or in person?
"I do think that to build a lasting relationship you need to meet people and connect with them on a personal level. So I don't know if I will keep in touch regularly with any of the mentors that I emailed, although I would definitely keep in touch now and again when I wanted to seek some advice or if I encountered a problem in the field of expertise that they were specializing in."
Can you recommend it?
“Anyway, I did enjoy the process and really appreciate being able to be involved – it has taught me a lot!”
