Dave Wilkin, Your Business columnist and founder of Redwood Strategic.

Partnering with a mentor should be a critical part of a Gen-Y entrepreneur's business journey, says Your Business guest columnist Dave Wilkin.

Mentorships provide young entrepreneurs with essential confidence and knowledge of business fundamentals. But they can also be beneficial for seasoned entrepreneurs who want to gain insight into new markets, strategies and ideas through the mind of a Gen-Y.
