CIO Mentor & Advisory

Need-Gap analysis of the CIO & Start-up eco-system

Technology entrepreneurs are typically a confident and independent minded bunch. They may hesitate to seek assistance from CIOs due to pride or simply lack the custom of doing so. Compounding the problem, potential CIO mentors, where they do exist, tend to focus on close acquaintances. And, many CIOs who can serve as mentors simply lack the Start-up engagement platform to do so.

“A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could.” – Zig Ziglar
Becoming a mentor can be a great way for a CIO to share his knowledge, expertise and experience.
The role of the CIO Mentor & Advisory is non – commercial and is all about guidance and helping Start-ups to achieve their goals and realize their potential. The CIOs under no circumstances are expected to implicitly and/ or explicitly become buyers of the start-ups solutions, products or services.
