Today on StartupSmart, we look at the changing face of mentorship.
No longer the preserve of staid, formal arrangements, finding a mentor now involves plenty of casual networking and a continually expanding list of contacts.
If you are on the hunt for a business guru, make sure you read our lowdown on where to look.
Elsewhere, we get the inside story of the trends that emerged from the recent Global Entrepreneurship Congress in Shanghai and mentor Graeme McCormack has some advice for independent souls who are considering becoming franchisees.
