Are you a start-up founder looking for guidance, but you’re not in an accelerator? It can be difficult to find mentors and advisors when you are on your own.

Do you have start-up experience that could help others? There’s not always a ready outlet to help in small doses.

That’s why I’m so enthused about Pascal Finette’s blog and network: http://theheretic.me/. Pascal’s concise daily blog is on the short list of subscriptions I happily read every single time it enters my Inbox.

Subscribe for a few weeks to get a feel for the Heretic philosophy and values. If it’s aligned with your own values, and you have something to offer entrepreneurs, join those of us who’ve volunteered to be part of The Heretic Network.

Ninety of us are participating as mentors and advisors, and to quote Pascal:

“From PhDs with a big data background to UX experts who worked on some of the most defining products in the last couple of years to serial entrepreneurs who have raised hundreds of millions of dollars in their career – they are all part of our network.

In a bigger sense this confirms my belief that we are our network and that we usually have all the resources we need well within our reach if we just ask.

So: ASK!

Make use of this amazing network, don’t be shy to reach out to folks and ask for help. When you do so – treat these people like the messiah; they all lead busy lives and kindly offered their time, expertise and network to help. Pay it back by being nice and pay it forward when your time comes.”
