Founder Institute Mentors provide the support, feedback, and guidance that helped our early-stage founders launch over 800 businesses since the Institute was founded in 2009. When a founder is in need they come to the rescue... sort of like Startup Superheroes.
While all of our 2500+ Mentors help our companies, among these great individuals, there are some that stand out. Earlier this year, we announced the nominees for the 2012 Mentor Awards, which will take place at the 14th Founder Showcase event, on Wednesday, July 17th in Silicon Valley.
Today, we are excited to announce the winner of the "Highest Rated Mentor in Europe" Award:
