Mentoring available at fintech incubator

 

wiggs_startup_703514Scott Kirsner’s article in The Boston Globe, Financial startups build momentum in Boston, includes a brief mention of mentoring.

The DCU Fintech Innovation Center is unusual in two different ways, one it’s run by a financial services company, and two, it provides startups with access to its executives. Are these trends or one-offs?

Mentoring has become a must-have ingredient for incubators and accelerators. But there enough great mentors to go around?
