Brad Feld has a soft spot for young entrepreneurs.

At 47, the veteran entrepreneur and early-stage venture capitalist has written countless blog posts about entrepreneurship, venture capital and mentorship, as well as numerous books including: Startup Communities: Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Your City and Startup Life: Surviving and Thriving in a Relationship with an Entrepreneur (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2012 and 2013). And since co-launching the Foundry Group in 2007, the Boulder, Colo.-based VC has invested in more than 50 startups from Zynga and MakerBot Industries to StockTwits and Cheezburger. He also co-founded TechStars, among other VC firms.

And though he has served as a mentor for many young entrepreneurs, Feld has long said the best mentor/mentee relationship is reciprocal. "My partners and I continually learn all kinds of things about startups," he wrote recently on his own blog Feld Thoughts. "We learn by doing -- through our investing at Foundry Group. But we also learn by teaching -- through writing (books and blogs), talking to entrepreneurs continually about what we are thinking, and evangelizing the power of startups and entrepreneurship as widely as we can."
