In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Rune Hauge. Rune is the co-founder and CEO of Mentorcam, a marketplace where people can access high-profile mentors for 1:1 advice.
Having access to an expert in your field can help you get to where you want to go faster. However, getting access to great mentors today is often difficult. Mentorcam is changing the game by making it easy and seamless for you to do just that. The platform connects people to the mentors they admire for personalized advice and mentorship.
In this episode, I talk with the co-founder and CEO of Mentorcam, Rune Hauge, about how he’s redefining mentorship by making it easier for entrepreneurs to gain access to expert advice and support.
Questions I ask Rune Hauge:
