Our mentor community engages in both in-person and remote mentoring with SU Ventures portfolio companies.
SU Ventures works with startups at the intersection of exponential technologies and global impact. Our programs provide know-how that can accelerate breakthroughs with support in an “all-you-can-engage” format for as the life of the company. We’ve mapped our entire approach to focus on the three key outcomes to help startups achieve long-term success: Capital, Customers, and Connections. We offer exclusive bootcamps, sprints, and other programs that go deep and aren’t available anywhere else.
Mentor engagement at Singularity University can take various forms. You can advise early-stage teams that are still working to build out their MVPs and undergo user testing. As a mentor, you’d help founders understand global challenges, ideate on solutions, validate their product(s), and work with teams to develop and refine their pitches.
You can also work with more mature teams, where mentoring would focus on achieving key deliverables, overcoming specific domain and industry challenges, and facilitating growth. This would entail making a small commitment to join a temporary board of advisors and working closely with other thought leaders and experts to offer guidance to companies that are taking moonshots to deliver significant global impact.
Whether you want to work with early-stage teams, later-stage ventures —or anything in between—there are many ways you can get involved and share your expertise. Note that these are not your typical Silicon Valley startups, either. You won’t find a single photo-sharing or dating app here. These are companies leveraging the power of exponential technology—AI, robotics, nanotech, synthetic biology, 3D printing, blockchain, and more—to solve the world’s most intractable problems.
