Are you ready for a mentor?
One of the best ways to get potential mentors excited about your business and ideas is through some preliminary preparation. Doing so helps to demonstrate your competence and ambition—both of which will help your mentor feel more confident in the viability of your business and their ability to help you achieve your goals. This worksheet is designed to make sure you are mentor-ready by helping you articulate your business plan and create a profile that stands out.
The Business Model Canvas
Have you written a business plan? The Business Model Canvas can help you outline the basic elements of a business plan, making your business idea much more clear to you and your mentor.
Even if you do have a business plan in place, The Business Model Canvas is a useful exercise that can help to summarize all of your business activities on one sheet of paper, allowing you and your mentor to analyze what you are currently doing and brainstorm possible solutions to the challenges you are facing.
