” When you’re building a company from the ground up, it’s all about who you know—peers you can learn from, accomplished mentors to guide you through new challenges, experienced leaders to help bring your vision to life. We don’t expect entrepreneurs to have all the answers. You need people in your corner who won’t judge you for asking tough questions, who will support you through highs and lows. That’s where we come in. “
