Great mentoring is an important pillar in the process.

We make connections on a prescriptive basis and hand pick the most appropriate mentor to work with each of our Startups. 

Having these experienced mentors provides Startups with access to a larger set of networks than they would not otherwise be able to generate themselves and this provides access to potential markets and a solution to technological or business roadblocks.

Experts in their individual fields, our Mentors also provide advice either face-to-face or remotely, to ensure participants are applying methods and processes learned in the Accelerator Program in an optimal manner.
