“Why are some mentors free?”

  • They want to share their experiences and help others learn from them. Sharing their experiences, wins and failures can truly change the trajectory of someone else’s path.
  • Speaking with up and coming businesses is fun and exciting!
  • Growth Mentors have a growth mindset and are looking to learn in each and every situaton- including mentoring sessions.
  • They are new to platform. New mentors are asked to do some free sessions in the beginning to get their feet wet and get a feel for the platform.
  • They want to build up reviews. They know they can add value and help people, so why should they be at the bottom of the list?!

As for the mentors who have an hourly rate on their profile, they are encouraged to set reasonable and startup friendly rates.


We put a huge emphasis on Human Relationships while building up GrowthMentor – it is even one of our core values.

So many people are caught up in ‘the race’- the race to funding, the race to acquisition, the race to the next career level, etc…

We’re not so interested in the above.

GrowthMentor was built to give everyday people access to quality, personalized advice AND to connect those with the knowledge, to those who can greatly benefit from it.

Here are some tips on how to get the maximum bang for your time on growth mentor calls.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be cool with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as honest as possible. 
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax. There’s no right/wrong way to do this. Avoid binary thinking.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors. Pay attention to metadata.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to play devil’s advocate and challenge your assumptions. 
  • Be friendly and authentic. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).
