When the Batchery launched in 2015, a group of 40 leaders in startups and venture capital committed to serving as Investor Advisors and supporters to all Batchery member companies.
Additionally, our network of 20+ mentors work closely with our enrolled startup entrepreneurs to advance their business growth, achieve investment readiness, and get to market faster. Much like our Investor Advisors, they hail from a broad range of experiential backgrounds, with the common thread of being leaders in their fields.
Batchery mentors typically meet with our entrepreneurs, either in person or remotely, to learn about their business and challenge their assumptions with the mentors' own facts, feedback, and industry experience.
The entrepreneur-adviser/mentor relationship is often the catalyst of the Valley's most successful ventures, and can lead to opportunities far beyond that initial mentorship.
