We (staff, mentors, facilitators, startups, donors…) are a community of kick-ass people who love to help startups thrive. That means when we run into a problem – for one of our startups or VVM itself – odds are damn good there is someone in our community who can help. And you know what, they would love to do so if we just asked :).
So when staring at a tough problem consider reaching out to our community (or asking for help to do so) to find someone who can help.
If you dig a little deeper you’ll see that inviting the community to help solve tough problems is one of the defining aspects of VVM. Our mentorship program puts smart people into a room and creates an efficient way for the right people to find each other – not for a handful of “sages” to guide our entrepreneurs to success.
Besides, it’s a lot more fun to involve your friends :).
