Founder Institute Mentors provide the support, feedback, and guidance that helped our early-stage founders launch over 800 businesses since the Institute was founded in 2009. When a founder is in need they come to the rescue... sort of like Startup Superheroes

While all of our 2500+ Mentors help our companies, among these great individuals, there are some that stand out. Earlier this year, we announced the nominees for the 2012 Mentor Awards, which will take place at the 14th Founder Showcase event, on Wednesday, July 17th in Silicon Valley.

Today, we are excited to announce the winner of the "Highest Rated Overall" Award:

 

          

Jimmy Hendricks is Co-Founder and CEO of Deal Current and has mentored in both the US and Chile. Deal Current is one of the most well recognized "white label" daily deal software companies in the US. Deal Current's hosted social commerce solutions and sales force training tools help media publishers implement their very own revenue-generating deal or coupon platform in 30 days or less. Prior to founding Deal Current, Hendricks was an executive at Active.com, a leading provider of application services technology and marketing solutions for community service and participatory sports organizations with $300M+ annual revenues.

Congratulations Jimmy!

The 2012 Startup Mentor Awards will be handed out at the Founder Showcase event, on Wednesday, July 17th, 2013. In addition to the award ceremony, the event will feature a series of early-stage startup workshops, led by Phil Libin (CEO of Evernote), Nir Eyal (Acclaimed Author and Speaker), and Joe Abraham (CEO & Founder, BOSI Global), as well as a pitch competition between six promising companies. We hope you will join us!
