MENTORS & speakers

Mentors and Speakers bring subject matter expertise from their experience as entrepreneurs, investors, executives, or researchers. By providing group educational sessions and coaching early stage ventures, they better position Brinc to support game-changing entrepreneurs. Brinc’s model relies on a network of mentors, speakers, investors, and other partners to provide the full range of support and services to make startups successful.

Happy to have you join us! Please fill out the interest form here and a member of the Brinc team will get back to you shortly.

As our programs are all conducted virtually, we will periodically have online networking sessions for all of our mentors. Our Program Managers will reach out to you when a session is available so you can network with other mentors and speakers in the program.

At the beginning of each cohort, we will re-engage with the existing mentor/speaker pool as well as engage with new mentor/speakers for their interest in joining the program. Each program’s respective Program Managers will reach out to relevant mentors/speakers to understand their particular experience and interest in joining the program. After, the Program Manager will share along the overview deck of that cohort’s startups and further introductions would be made directly to the startups.

Mentorship in Brinc program is on a pro bono basis. If you are interested in providing your services to Brinc’s startups, please fill out this Partnership Interest form here and a member of our team will reach out to you promptly.
