Why Mentor Bureau? Because Too Many Startups:
- Get questionable advice based on insufficient information
- Fail to properly advocate for their best interests in mentoring situations
- Receive “favor” advice, rather working with dedicated, accountable advisors
- Don’t leverage the full benefits of accelerator programs, due to a lack of knowledge
- Pitch unprepared, without a clear articulation of the critical information investors need
- Don’t properly leverage the human capital and expertise available
- Find themselves without reliable, vested counsel after accelerator programs end
AFFORDABLE, TRUSTED MENTORS
- Objective advisors help identify options and seize opportunity
- Experienced coaches optimize individual and team performance
- Mentors that appreciate you, not just your business
- Support for the design efficient processes and systems
- Wise counsel to help you (gain investment, etc.)
- Approaches that help you scale without giving away the farm
- A community of seasoned peers and mentors who understand
SLOW IS SMOOTH,
SMOOTH IS SMART,
SMART IS FAST.

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.
