Grow as an LGBTQ+ entrepreneur and strengthen our community by joining the Mentorship program, generously supported by AT&T. Whether you seek a mentor to help your business get to the next level, or want to give back and gain new perspectives while coaching another entrepreneur, joining our mentorship program is certain to be a rewarding experience.

StartOut’s commitment to you: As the provider of this program, we do our very best to match you with a mentor or mentee well suited to your needs and expertise within 30 days of submission. If initially we do not find a strong match, we will continue searching on your behalf until we find the right connection for you.

What we ask of you: A successful match is dependent on a thoughtful application, so please answer your mentorship form with care. Once you have been matched, we ask that both parties be responsive to one another and schedule a minimum of two hours per month to work together.

I am so proud to be a StartOut mentee! Being an entrepreneur can sometimes feel isolating when you’re first starting out. Working with a StartOut mentor helped me develop my project management skills, identify knowledge gaps that a founder needs to know, and find new strategic partnerships.
