Head to the backporch of Trident to learn from some of the best accelerators about how their companies are so successful because of strong mentorship. You’ll come away with an understanding of how do I find mentors, what’s that relationship like, what do I do when I have a mentor, and how can I accelerate my startup before getting into an accelerator and keep the momentum going after an accelerator.
