Quality mentorship lies at the center of all successful accelerator programs. Effective mentors force founders to ask themselves tough questions and offer different perspectives to challenge assumptions. Mentors keep founding teams honest and accountable for the decisions and commitments they make for their companies. We find that founders learn best from other successful entrepreneurs, and so we place a high value on recruiting mentors with startup experience – individuals who have built, scaled and sold companies.

At SixThirty CYBER, we engage mentors in two different capacities: lead mentors and subject-matter experts.

Lead Mentors
Each company in a cohort is assigned a lead mentor over the course of the program. The lead mentor meets with the founding team on a weekly basis, keeps them on track, and reports back to the other lead mentors for advice on direction and strategy.

Subject-Matter Experts
In addition to our capable team of lead mentors, SixThirty CYBER companies can also rely on the expertise and insight of our extensive list of subject-matter mentors, experts in a variety of fields including, but not limited to: sales, fundraising and customer acquisition.
