THERE ARE VERY FEW SHORTCUTS TO STARTUP SUCCESS. MENTOR BUREAU PROVIDES ONE OF THEM.

All of the skills and knowledge needed to build successful startups already exists, it’s just not widely distributed. Mentor Bureau aims to fix this and many other problems in the global startup ecosystem by bringing a higher degree of professionalism to mentorship. If you have been accepted into an accelerator or incubator program, we can maximize the value you receive from it.

Startup Growth Advisory

We do startup intelligence – weekly advisory sessions on growth strategies, decision making and operational design. Stand on our shoulders. Let us give you a better perspective, ask better questions, get better results.

Founder/Team Coaching

We do emotional intelligence – ongoing coaching to manage the personal and interpersonal issues that often get ignored until they blow up. Lean on our shoulders. When you are struggling, and have no one else to talk to about your startup strategy, you can talk to us.

Advisory Management

We provide independent advisory – evaluating all of the different advice you are getting from your team, customers, investors, advisors and accelerator programs can be overwhelming. We help you make sense of it, ask the right questions and help you choose the right direction.

"Mentors are your best shortcuts to lasting success"

We are not your typical mentors, we are a network of well connected silicon valley veterans, startup founders and subject matter experts who enjoy scaling startups. Learn more about what we do and how we can help you.

Do you need more scaling expertise on your team?

Whether you are outside one of the startup epicenters or right in the heart of one, we invite you to consider working with Mentor Bureau to complement your existing team and accelerate your startup’s growth.

Since we are more of an accelerant instead of an Accelerator, we don’t have a standard schedule or calendar to follow. Instead, we offer the right advice for right where you are and right where you want to go. As a new startup ourselves, we follow our own advice, and will only be taking on eight (8) startups to join our first Startup Circle.

To get started, we offer a free mentorship session to qualifying startups. Should we both determine that Mentor Bureau has the right experience and the right talents for your specific needs, we will work to create an action plan and begin working to support you and the growth of your business.
