Investor Connect Podcast

Investor, Advisor, Mentor, Board

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

There are four ways someone can help a startup outside of becoming an employee.

You can be an investor, an advisor, a mentor, or a board member. 

As an investor, you can fund the startup.

As an advisor, you can guide the founder on strategy and make introductions.

As a mentor, you can coach the startup on various aspects of running the business such as hiring, planning, selling, and more.

As a board member, you can provide governance and oversight over the company.

Each role takes a certain amount of time.

The investor role can take little time with just monthly or quarterly check-ins.

The advisor role could take more time with two to four calls per month.

The mentor role could be two lunches a month or more.

The board member role could take ten hours a month or more.

Consider your time availability before committing to a startup.

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
