JOIN OUR COMMUNITY
OF MENTORS

We want to build a diverse community of mentors to journey with social entrepreneurs ready to launch into purpose. Mentors will support early-stage entrepreneurs participating in the 2018 DO GOOD X 8-week Startup Accelerator.

Our mentoring community is a network of faithful entrepreneurs, business leaders, and coaches passionate about giving back and supporting social entrepreneurs. DO GOOD X’s mentors are key to the successful launch and scale of participants’ social entrepreneurial ventures.

We want to leverage the expertise, knowledge, and skills of business mentors, representing diverse skills, experiences, and backgrounds. Mentors will participate throughout the 8-week accelerator or three to six months afterward to help participants launch their projects.
