Kickstart is made possible through the combined efforts of our amazing community! Find and connect with mentors, experts and executives.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor or expert for Kickstart 2019, please fill in the form below to get into our mentor and expert pool.

The mentor-mentee matchmaking will take place once the startups are selected in July. The number of mentors in the Kickstart mentor pool exceeds the number of startups, therefore mentor spots can’t be guaranteed until after the mentor-mentee matching.

The expert list will be finalised in August 2019. The number of experts in the pool exceeds the number of final experts, therefore expert spots can’t be guaranteed.

We think of mentoring as building a relationship with someone who accompanies and inspires a startup along its journey. Our Mentors have a track record as an entrepreneur and want to share their knowledge and experiences with the next generation of entrepreneurs.
