As well as connecting online...

There are mentors who travel to meet entrepreneurs in person, some who are completing their thirteenth mentoring experience with Bridge for Billions, and others who have even become co-founders with their entrepreneurs

Being a mentor is…
We could tell you all about how enriching and enlightening it is to mentor projects from 63 different countries while connecting with professionals from a variety of sectors, but it’s better that you hear it from our entrepreneurs and mentors themselves. Their energy is contagious!

"Bridge for Billions provides an exceptional opportunity for entrepreneurs to develop their ideas into business proposals that respond to their needs. I had the great privilege to mentor a social entrepreneurship project. I am proud to say that I have learned a lot and improved my knowledge and experience through this process."

“Unlike other programs where I’ve mentored, The Leap is very intuitive and easy to structure. It allowed me to contribute a lot in a short amount of time.”

"We were lucky to count with two intelligent and experienced mentors: Nelson Romero and Roger Hidalgo. Our mentor has been a guiding light. He’s been our coach, one generous with his time and knowledge. Roger has a wealth of experience and an ability to explain complicated concepts in simple, digestible bits that stay with you. They’ve brought focus to our brainstorming sessions, solved our doubts, shared additional resources. They’ve become a part of Wakuy."

“Not only do I feel like I’ve had an impact, but I’ve also gained experience in how to start a business, thanks to the program’s tools and methodology.”
