Not all of us do it for the cash, some of us consider 'The Godfather' way - but ultimately there are a few great people out there in our creative world that give up their time to help and assist startups and young companies without looking for cash.
I personally have helped one or two companies with no regard for covering costs, just for the love of it or consideration of minor equity - just by identifying their passion and recognising a true creative opportunity that needs commercial urgency applied.
Does a group exist of Mentors (from the creative and tech industries) that are willing to give up their time to better help possible innovators; sharing their experience of anything from company culture to preparing a business plan? I guess someone (Ewan) would need to validate each person rather than it be an open group?
Would it be of use?
Does it require mentors to be validated?
