Why talk to a EdTech mentor?

The world of edtech is changing so rapidly that it can be hard to keep up with what’s happening in the industry. That’s why having someone who has been there before and knows how to navigate the challenges of starting an edtech startup can be invaluable.

When you’re just starting out, it can seem like there are too many things to consider. The product, the marketing and growth strategy, the business model, building a team, etc. But having someone who has been through the process of launching and scaling an edtech startup before can help you focus on what matters most, and make sure that you don’t miss important details along the way.

Mentors aren’t just for big companies either—they can be great for small bootstrapped startups, too! They provide the insight into what it takes to succeed in today’s competitive edtech landscape; plus they’ll give advice on how best to navigate through all those obstacles while still maintaining a healthy balance between work life and personal life.

Whether you’re a new edtech startup founder, or have been in business for years, it’s important to have a mentor, and on GrowthMentor, we make that super easy and affordable.

So what are you waiting for?

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.
