Mentor Louisville connects startup founders and management with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs).

Often startup founders and management find themselves with titles that their years of experience do not match. Whether that be a first time CEO or a brand new salesperson quickly promoted to VP of Sales, growing startups rarely can pay the price of a full-blown expert in every area.

So you try to learn as quickly as you can, but sometimes you need the wisdom of living that role for years and years.

Knowledge comes from learning.

Wisdom comes from Living.
