Kinect Alumni Program Applications Due

September 29, 2023


Alumni Applications are due Friday, September 29.

CEOs who graduated from Kinect’s mentoring program and have closed capital or are in the process of raising capital are invited to participate in this private peer-to-peer masterclass, the Kinect Alumni Program.

Alumni need more advanced, high-end guidance to continue scaling their business. We connect entrepreneurs with leading experts, Kinect graduate mentors, and capital providers to support our entrepreneurs’ networks, knowledge, and business growth. 

The Kinect Alumni Program rekindles connections between founders and CEOs who graduated from the Kinect mentor program with other program alumni, and provides a networking opportunity to meet strategic partners and experts to advance each business’ viability.

Since 2009, our alumni companies have closed $1.6+ billion in investment capital and generated $10.8 billion in returns. The Kinect Alumni Program refreshes engagement and prepares for further growth furthering our economic impact as a community of founders. This is a free program for graduate founders to participate in. This program can only accept 40 members, so don’t hesitate to apply.
