Today on StartupSmart, we pick out the 10 things that entrepreneurs should be looking for in an effective mentor.

Settling down for a regular latte (or something stronger) with an experienced business guru is as important as ever, even in the age of instant information and crowdsourcing.

But it’s important that you find a mentor who provides tangible value to your start-up. We speak to the experts to uncover the key qualities you should keep an eye out for.

Elsewhere, we have news of one start-up, Mercurien, looking to expand beyond Australia, while another business, Cole Stone Creamery, is set to arrive on our shores.

Also, mentor Craig Yeung, our resident lawyer, has some tips on how to slash your legal bills.
