Remember to really listen to their reality before suggesting things you know from your experience.

Yes exactly.

Probably just provide an ear and then make people talk and they will articulate what their problem is better and they’ll find the answers themselves.


I enjoyed "Do More Faster" which has a selection of advice from a number of startup founders who went through Techstars (and some advisors as well).
