And no, just because mentors are offering their time for free, doesn't mean they're not good. It just means they have other motivations besides just money for offering mentorship. Many of the mentors on the platform are legitimately curious to learn what pain points startups are facing. Also it's very common that very valuable networking (and investment) opportunities arise out of bilaterally valuable mentor exchanges. So don't be surprised if you meet your next investor on the platform!

Can I talk to a growth mentor about anything I want?

Yep. Talk about whatever you want. You might start the chat talking about your general situation then spend a few minutes to discuss what sort of help you're looking for. We think conversations are more meaningful and effective if they're kept casual. There are no "rules." Just be comfortable and try and have some fun!

Do I have to prepare for the call in advance?

Great question. No, you don't have to, but the better prepared you are the more value you'll get out of the calls. Try and be ready with the talking points you want to go over before the call.

Do mentors set their own rates?

Yea, the mentors set their own rates. We encourage the growth mentors to charge "friendly" rates. We think that mentorship has value for both the mentor and the mentee. This is a safe space where you can get in contact with mentors that intimitely understand the challenges of growing a startup and legitimately want to help. We believe that karma is a real thing and it's part of our brand's core values. We like to attract mentors that embody that, which is why you'll always find that a certain percentage of mentors are donating their time for free.

What percentage of growth mentor applicants are accepted onto the platform?

To date, this has been averaging at around 5% of applicants, although as the number of applicants increases this rate is likely to shrink. It’s truly important to us, that mentors at GrowthMentor fully embody our core values of Karma, a passion for helping people and giving back to the community, and of course professionalism. We’re trying to build a resource here that adds the maximum possible value that it can to the global entrepreneurial space, and our recruitment process is designed to reflect that goal.

Can I hire a growth mentor to work for me on a project basis?

Many of the mentors on the platform are already working fulltime at other positions and are mentoring on the side for their own reasons. But there are also a number of mentors who are open for side-gigs. If you want to hire your mentor to do actionable work for you as opposed to simply consulting you, you are free to ask them. This is a personal matter between the two of you which does not concern GrowthMentor as a platform.
