I've been pretty lucky to have great mentors on my start up journey.

The best way to find great mentors is to make a short list of your ideal mentors and contact them. Let them know you are looking for a mentor and want to build a long term relationship. If they agree to meet you and there is chemistry, you should be well on your way to a long and sustainable relationship.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that your mentors are giving up valuable time. If you go in to your mentor sessions with a know it all attitude and don't listen to their coaching, i'm afraid you won't have a sustainable relationship. Don't forget you are there to learn from them, and in the ideal situation, they will learn from you.


I think you have to follow your gut here. If its telling you that this investor is going to be a more of a headache and will take up most of your time then don't take the investment. You want to make sure you are focused on building a great company.
I would also have a conversation about how the investor feels about you approaching their competitors as potential customers. Get it all out on the table before signing the dotted line.
