Mozes Victor Konig has been using his success with MVK Ventures SARL to guide others who are interested in the possibility of becoming a Venture Capital mentor.
“Thankfully I’ve had some success with my own company and I’ve really enjoyed the process of being a Venture Capitalist – something I still enjoy. However, being a mentor is even better. And I think that’s because of human nature’s desire to give to others. As Winston Churchill once said, ‘We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.’”
One can gain so much from being a mentor. Seeing your mentee succeed and do well and knowing that you have helped them is huge. Some of the greatest success stories attribute their prosperity to the mentors they have had. Examples of this include: Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook who was mentored by the late Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, Warren Buffett – described as “one of the most successful investors of all time” – credited Benjamin Graham and what he learned in his book, ‘The Intelligent Investor,’ with helping him with his entire investment philosophy, etc.
Ultimately, no matter how much one has achieved in their lifetimes, helping others is invaluable. And this is what Mozes Victor Konig has experienced and no doubt the others who have gainfully passed their wisdom on to others.
