If you’re not willing to pass on your own knowledge, you never deserved to know it in the first place…

~Chris Foltz

People often ask... Chris, why do you spend so much time mentoring?

I once read “Many can advise; but few can mentor. That’s because an adviser is one who directs. A mentor, on the other hand, guides.” This is fundamental and core to my philosophies on mentorship – and is why I have dedicated a large portion of my life serving as a mentor to startups & founders across six continents.

Current Founder Institute Mentorships: San Francisco (Cannabis), Silicon Valley, and Abuja, Nigeria
