Mentor Bureau seeks to collaborate with organizations supporting the global startup ecosystem who provide unique value to earlier stage growth companies. Our current partnerships reflect the core of our belief that great companies require great founders who know themselves and who develop a a clear, easy to follow plan for all stakeholders to pursue. We work with our startup clients in implementing these solutions and developing an ongoing process management plan.
With Koan, slash time to market
Startups trust Koan to accelerate growth. Save time in meetings, build accountability, and foster great communication with simple status reports and goal tracking for the entire company.
Mentor Bureau has chosen to partner with Koan after reviewing their Leadership Planning tool which enables both agile and OKR methods exceptionally well. Their product approach and road map is flexible and matches the initial needs of an early stage startup and scales easily and cost efficiently. Look for our upcoming “Growing with Startup OKR’s” online workshop soon.
Founder performance drives company performance
Founders with high self-awareness and a desire to continually grow are the secret ingredient of high-performance companies. RallyBright provides a number of performance development tools to help founders better understand their personalities and likely behaviors in different situations, and pinpoint the areas where they can make high-impact improvements.
Mentor Bureau clients are given an annual professional premium account that includes a DISC Assessment, a Conflict Style Assessment and and Active Resilience Quotient assessment. For both early and later growth stage companies, we often suggest leveraging RallyBright’s High Performance team assessments as well to resolve open issues and dramatically improve collaboration and team performance.

Are you an accelerator or incubator?
Several of our core Mentors, including our Entrepreneur in Residence has worked with several accelerator programs as Mentors and advisors to the program, working to improve the overall startup journey through the program and the value created. Our lessons learned from working with different startup ecosystems around the world may be just the thing you need to take your program to the next level.
While there are a wide array of special projects we could do with accelerator programs, we are particularly interested in:
- Providing professional mentors for your next startup class.
- Producing a training workshop to improve the quality of your existing Mentor program.
- Managing your Mentor Community to improve the results they deliver to your startups and provide more value to the mentors.
- Inviting your mentors to apply to join our network, to connect them with more opportunities to grow and connect outside of your network.
