The MESA mentors are one of the most trusted advisors a founder CEO can have. MESA brings both trust and clarity to help a founder address challenges and determine what actions are best.
MESA provides a unique perspective that we don’t get elsewhere. We have experience doing product development but not in operating and running a business. Our MESA mentors provide us with the operational guidance we need.
Our MESA mentors were able to articulate proven strategies that we implemented to improve internal alignment. Very quickly the team was more in sync as the new strategies allowed us to have a clear line of sight to where we needed to go.
