First time formally advising a startup. Tips?

Interesting that you have weekly meetings scheduled... make sure this really is an advisor role vs you simply not getting paid and acting as a consultant or the unpaid head of an organization. In my experience advisor roles have been around connecting, making intros, reviewing documentation, offering feedback (as opposed to me 'creating' something, which a paid employee should be doing).
Ask questions - open ended, have you considered, what are the goals etc. It should be more of a mentoring role than providing answers/work as JocelynD alludes to.
