Remember when you were just starting out as an entrepreneur? All those mistakes you made? How badly do you wish you could give your past the knowledge you know now. Well of course we can’t go back in time, but we can help the future business owners by sharing our wisdom.
At Fownders that’s exactly what we do. You can become a part of this mission by becoming a mentor or speaker to our accelerator’s startups.
At Fownders we pride ourselves on the quality of mentorship we dedicate to our cohorts. During our startup accelerator 12 week program, ‘Seed to Scale’ our team of professional entrepreneurs are committed to mentoring the startups accepted along with the way. Our team here offers their expertise and knowledge to their startup on a daily basis.
We also know how important it is to have outsiders perspectives. That’s why we invite other modern entrepreneurs making big waves in their designated industries to speak to our startups. Those who have accepted our invite include leaders like Lewis Howes, Peter Vjood, and Ryan Blair. And just like everyone here after entering our doors became members of the Fownders’ family.
If you’re an experienced entrepreneur with a desire to give back, consider becoming a Fownders’ mentor or speaker. Mentors commit more time and attention to an assigned startup while a speaker comes for one day and delivers a valuable and action step lesson.
Our second round of Seed to Scale begins in February, and we’re looking for other experts who are interested in mentoring or speaking to this next group of hungry entrepreneurs.
We know as a business owner you already have a busy schedule and we understand that. Our location makes it easy to commute to if you’re in the big city as we’re only one train stop away from New York City.
If you are an expert and seasoned entrepreneur looking for a way to give back and be apart of the Fownders movement, please email Brian@fownders.com
What we look for in a mentor…
We look for people who made it on their own. They took risks, learned the lessons, and kept moving forward.
They are the type of people who know their mission is more than just to feed themselves but about a bigger purpose. They are committed to the highest truth, good, and win for not only them but their clients as well.
They took advantage of our technologically advanced world and positioned themselves to use it for their advancement.
They are giving people that care about their clients and spreading their message to the masses.
They are Fownders and own their lives.
Examples of expertise we’re looking for are people in social media marketing, brand awareness, legality, marketing, website, business plans, or any knowledge you can share with a new business team.
