Our goal? Your growth.

No two startups are alike, which is why the tech2impact mentorship program is designed to address the specific challenges you face.

The tech2impact mentorship program was designed exclusively with impact tech founders in mind. Over the course of 4 months, you will gain valuable insights that will help you tackle challenges and grasp opportunities through guided support and personal mentoring.

The program is accessible for founders all across the globe and completely virtual. And because the only predictable part of founding a startup is unpredictability, your mentoring sessions are completely adaptable to your and your mentor’s schedule.


Greater impact through added value

Get matched with your dedicated mentor
You receive a dedicated mentor, depending on the expertise you need, who will guide you through the 4 month program with 10 hours of tailored 1:1 advice.

Gain knowledge on what it takes to be ready for investment
12 insights sessions will prepare you for your next fundraising round and our Demo Day at the end of the program gives you the opportunity to showcase your startup to potential investors.

Become part of a global network of founders, accelerators & investors
But most importantly you will share your journey as an impact tech founder with 25 fellow founders in our monthly meetups and become part of our global impact tech community with +250 members.

  • 27 mentors from all over the world
  • 10 hours of tailored one-on-one mentoring
  • 12 sessions focus on investment readiness
  • access to a global impact tech network

The road to your next investment round

Our 12 insight sessions are either led by one of our mentors or other experts from our global network. This is the chance for all founders from our #2 mentorship cohort to come together, gain knowledge and share experiences.

In comparison with your 1:1 mentoring sessions where the topic is 100% decided by you and your mentor, these insights are focused on getting you one step closer to your next fundraising goal.
