Facilitate mentorship

Your mentors will be provided training and the same tools as entrepreneurs, which have proven to increase the mentorships' quality.

The platform at a glance

It offers a gamified and step by step experience that allows entrepreneurs to create their business plans and structure their model. Far from theory, the pedagogy pushes early-stage founders to formulate their ideas and answer the tough questions. It invites them to “get out there”, talk to people, research, and validate their ideas. The mentor is here every week to challenge assumptions, double check and support.

Program licenses will be valid from May until December 2020. In this time, incubators will let their entrepreneurs and mentors match one another via the platform's matching module, and have them start the structured online incubation with weekly activities and mentorship sessions. Not all programmes have to run concurrently, each incubator will need 4 months for their participants to complete the full Bridge for Billions incubation cycle.
