Mentor for startups – to make visions come true

We are looking for mentors at the Tech Incubator at Queens College to support and guide our client companies from our startup programs in 2023. 

As a mentor you will be part of an exclusive network of likeminded professionals, and we will match you with handpicked startups. We offer a well-structured program, professional mentor training leading to a certification as mentor.

A mindset that includes an essential principle of willingness to help and support our startups on their specific journey to make their visions come true. As a mentor you will build relationships that focus on nurturing and growing individual competencies and potentials – bringing everybody’s best qualities, experiences, and initiatives into play.

You will be spending 2-4 hours a month with your selected mentee for a duration up to 9 months. We expect a high impact of the program and provide you with professional training sessions, networks with other mentors and the opportunity to share your experiences with other mentors in your cohort.
