Mentoring Experience Highlights
Between 5 – 8 mentors support an individual CEO for the duration of the cohort. Meetings are private, encouraging, and activate open conversations around raising capital. Every meeting starts with the CEO pitching their business and funding need and the mentoring team provides feedback on practically ever aspect that influences the pitch.
Each team is curated around the CEO and their needs. Each group has a Mentor Lead who orchestrates the meetings. Investor Liaisons operate the Zoom sessions, manage the group calendar, and send out notes. The Mentors contribute feedback based on the entrepreneur’s pitch.
Mentoring runs between 4 – 8 weeks, where the group meets once per week for an hour. Dates and times are determined at the beginning of the cohort.
Nearing the completion of the mentoring, the CEO will pitch to a group of active, accredited investors and capital providers to get candid feedback in a safe environment. Mentors listen in to hear the feedback as well.
