Our Mentors

Our mentors are the key to fast-tracking our clients. Mentors have the advice to help you avoid the potholes and the contacts to open doors for you. Some have offered to be long-term business coaches, some are available to hear your business value proposition, and some can open up their network to you.

If you see a mentor you would like to connect with, email [email protected].

If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer mentor for Innovation Factory, please fill out the application form. We’re extremely thankful for the support of our mentors and would love to hear from you if you’re interested in lending your expertise!
