My first suggestion would be to focus on the type of mentor(s) you need in the various areas. Do you need a technical mentor, business operations mentor, etc.? From there, I would then compile a list of questions that you need to ask those individuals. The better organized you are, the easier it will be for the mentor to assist for the areas of focus.
