Radu Ionescu

Angel investor and advisor
I've invested and advised Sailo - a boat rental marketplace (so quite a classical OTA) since 2018. Being hands on and going through ups and downs, including pandemics and war, I understand the travel industry metrics and flows and can bring value to startups in this area (though I will not work with any Sailo competitor).

Why talk to a TravelTech mentor?

Having a mentor is extremely important, especially in the field of traveltech.

Traveltech combines technology with travel, and it is a very specific field that requires a lot of knowledge and experience to be successful. It’s not enough to just know about technology—you need to understand the needs of travelers, how they behave when they’re on vacation, and how you can use technology to improve their experience.

If you want to get into traveltech, one of the best things you can do is find a mentor who knows the industry well and has worked in it for a long time. Having someone like this as an ally will give you access to information that would otherwise be impossible to access without years of experience or direct involvement with companies involved in travel tech. A good mentor will also give you feedback on your ideas and projects so that you can make them even better than they would have been if you’d gone it alone!

Simple answer

Because they are nice people.

Extended answer

  • They genuinely enjoy helping.
  • They want to share their experiences and help others learn from them. Sharing their experiences, wins, and failures can truly change the trajectory of someone else’s path.
  • It keeps them on their toes. No better way to sharpen your skills than to teach someone else!
  • Speaking with up-and-coming businesses is fun and exciting!
  • Growth Mentors have a growth mindset and are looking to learn in each and every situation- including mentoring sessions.
  • They are new to the platform. New mentors are asked to do some free sessions, in the beginning, to get their feet wet and get a feel for the platform. Only after mentors have 3 reviews can they set a price and charge.

Here are some tips.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be ok with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as openly as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Full disclaimer- there are no silver bullets for Growth, so we can’t make any false promises.

If you have a growth mindset and are looking to connect with various experienced individuals and learn from them, you will get value from GrowthMentor.

All mentors are 100% legit. They’re not here to pitch or sell you anything – they’re here to help people like you who are trying to better themselves.
