"Being a mentor with Startupbootcamp is a very rewarding experience. It gives mentors the opportunity to share their experience and their network and engage with very driven founders who are building the next cohorts of companies. Both mentors as well as founders learn a lot through the mentoring process as introductions are made, ideas are exchanged, put to the test and, if viable, adopted."

Stuart Allison
Climate Change Authority
SBC Mentor, Board Member

“I started as a mentor in December 2017, and it's been a really invigorating experience. I was asked recently 'What do I get out of it?'. Quietly, I think I got more out of it than the entrepreneurs. To be able to kind of reflect on that and then to help guide some of these startups has been so rewarding.”
