Your Mentors, COACHES, ADVISORS AND CONNECTORS

The conventional mentor model is inadequate for the diverse needs of startups. Our network is segmented into Connectors who will put you in front of people you have no business talking to, Advisors which provide tactical and specific advice to get you past hurdles, Coaches who train specific business disciplines, and Mentors who invest in you to be your best self.
