US Mentors

Can you help us develop the next generation of University of Cambridge spin-outs?

We’re looking for mentors based in the US to advise our portfolio companies and help them grow into global leaders. We have selected five of our portfolio companies to take part in this pilot programme.

All of these companies are starting from brilliant minds and world-leading Cambridge science. With a great mentor on board we can increase the chances of building a truly successful company with global impact. Mentoring is proven to help support success in this difficult early stage of a growing company, when the failure rate can be high.

Mentored companies are three times more likely to be successful

Building bridges to success

Could you help one of our companies build cross-Atlantic connections with potential collaborators and customers? More importantly, could you contribute a US sense of scale to their strategic thinking?

This is exactly the type of support you may have wanted when you started out. Now we are offering the opportunity to be that mentor and guide our young companies.

If you are interested in sharing your advice, network and time, and would like to know more, please get in touch.
