Entrepreneur Applications due this Friday for our 4th Mentor Cycle
With 3 mentor cycles behind us, the Founder Mentors program has connected over 80 entrepreneurs with experienced startup founders. We've heard amazing stories of part-time founders who used the support of the program to take the leap and commit full-time to their startups. We've heard other great stories of founders getting a fresh perspective, new direction, or valuable introductions that helped them take their startups to the next level.
As we get ready for our 4th mentor cycle, there are a lot of things we're excited about:
- More mentors. We've recently added folks including Chris Aronis, co-founder of Dataware Solutions, Jay Batson, co-founder of Acquia, and Bob Mason, co-founder of Brightcove. More mentors means more opportunities to match up entrepreneurs in our coming cycles!
- More entrepreneurs. Despite the growing number of startup resources - even startup mentoring programs - out there, interest in the Founder Mentors program continues to grow. We know we've hit on something that the Boston startup scene has been craving.
- More stories. We love the stories like the ones above - it shows that the time and effort from our mentors is having a big impact and helping businesses tackle real challenges they're facing. We can't wait to hear more awesome stories.
If you're interested in participating in the next mentor cycle, you can apply here. Don't forget to fill out part 2 of the application - the information survey (you'll get the link by email) - to tell us more about yourself and better match you to one of our mentors.
