What To Expect

DO GOOD X will provide an orientation each August for mentors accompanying Fellows participating in the Startup Accelerator. Mentors will provide encouragement, journey with Fellows through the accelerator, share stories of lessons learned, troubleshoot potential problems, and connect participants to resources that will help advance their business ideas.

Mentors will accompany one to two social entrepreneurs during the 10-week Startup Accelerator (August - November) and assist them in preparing to pitch their business ideas.

We expect mentors to:

  • Be committed and responsive.
  • Be authentic and direct.
  • Listen well with empathy.
  • Guide entrepreneurs but don’t dictate their next steps.
  • Challenge entrepreneurs and hold them accountable.
