Best Practices

Medium PK allows you find mentors and ensures they meet the following standards:

  • Formal structured relationships (e.g. not an informal meet-up group)
  • One-on-one mentor matching or peer mentoring
  • Mentoring for a defined period of time
  • Confidentiality and conflict of interest policies requiring acknowledgement from mentors and mentee

Medium PK also maintains most, if not all, of the following best practices:

  • A policy preventing mentors from being investors in their mentee’s business
  • A policy to ensure that mentors are not industry competitors to the mentee’s company
  • A process with qualifying criteria of mentors and mentees
  • A process to measure mentee satisfaction
  • Program-related training for mentors
