The most talented entrepreneurs can – and do – change the world! And behind every amazing entrepreneur, there is almost always an equally amazing mentor – or a whole group of mentors. LinkedIn CEO Reid Hoffman has commented on the power of mentorship and networks that: "Life is a team sport. And, as much as entrepreneurs look like individuals who explore the desert by themselves in order to find riches, they are actually successful based upon their ability to find, build, connect, and collaborate with important networks."
This panel will explore the idea that mentorship networks are reaching farther than ever before, bolstered by organizations like Endeavor and Village Capital, who have facilitated thousands of breakthrough mentoring connections over the past two decades, and that it is these “exponential entrepreneurs” who leverage the power of mentorship to multiply their own impact who become the biggest success stories.
