Mentor Catalyst

I am an experienced online community-builder and architect. My primary focus is developing large-scale online community ecosystems. I designed and launched TechRepublic.com, quickly growing to 2mm members. I have developed and launched modern communities for Autodesk and Dell (connecting millions of customers and creating upwards of $100 Million in financial impact).

My new firm, Structure3C, focuses on designing modern communities and networked products, working with leading-edge startups like Crowdsmart and innovative brands like Salesforce, IBM, and Intuit.

Do you want more startup expertise on your team?

Mentor Bureau is a group of professional mentors who you can rely on for the right questions to lead to the right direction for your startup.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 assessment to qualifying startups. Should we both determine that Mentor Bureau has the right experience and the right talents for your specific needs, we will determine our planned areas of focus and begin working together.
