I have recently decided to try my hand at being a technical advisor. I’ve been doing this kind of work (pro bono) for years with local non-profits, but would like to segue into advising local startups and getting paid/equity for my efforts. While I’m comfortable with the technical aspects of this line of work, I have no experience with its idiosyncrasies. Things like negotiating compensation and managing scope/expectations being the biggest. What are some good resources you can recommend that might help me close these gaps? A specific blog, ebook, etc?
