Mentors & Advisors

We are grateful that more than 200 successful entrepreneurs, CEOs, investors, pharmaceutical company executives, lawyers, consultants and other experts donate their time to mentor and advise our entrepreneurs in line with Silicon Valley’s “pay it forward” culture.

Studies have shown that mentorship is one of the most important ingredients for entrepreneurial success. Mentors are attached to a Startup 101 team and make a weekly commitment to guide participants throughout the class. Some stay connected with their team after the class has finished, either continuing counsel, helping source investments, and occasionally joining the team.

Advisors have specific areas of expertise and are available on as-needed basis for questions and counsel.  

We thank all those who have made this program a success!
