Andrew Ive has a new venture underway: Advisor Garage
I think the idea – connecting entrepreneurs with advisors, who can help with fundraising or operations – fills a valuable niche. The formation of an advisor group is a key activity for any start-up, so increased efficiencies would be welcome. However,it is also a very intimate process. My suspicion is that Advisor Garage will be most effective in creating introductions.
Andrew says that the service is primarily for Engllish-speaking countries, but I am sure people eveywhere will sign up. There may be quite a bit of value for entrepreneurs in geographies where the start-up path is less defined that the US or the UK.
The service is free for advisors, and attains reveneues by selling a premium membership to entrepreneurs.
