Mentors & Advisors Defined
For our purposes, a mentor is a person that takes an active, weekly role in guiding an incubatee through a defined plan of action to take their business to the next level.
An advisor, on the other hand, is a person with specific expertise that will meet with an incubatee on an "as-needed" basis to provide constructive input and make strategic connections.
