The Founder Institute carefully recruits approximately 25 Mentors per Semester, who are normally the CEO or Founder of a successful startup. These Mentors are selected based on their expertise on a topic in the curriculum, and their mandate is to help participating Founders by sharing their experience and providing feedback.

Mentors are accessible to Founders in the program during the sessions and through email, and the Founder Institute's Shared Liquidity model provides an incentive for Mentors to proactively help our companies.
