Growthmentor is such an amazing place.

It's like this enchanted realm—I'm still pinching myself to make sure it's not a dream. 😁

In the past two weeks, I've been able to jump on calls with experts who were able to give me actionable advice on the nittiest, grittiest level of my workflow.

As a solo founder, this is HUGE!

It helps to get real-time, on-demand, tried-and-true advice from thought leaders in a complementary array of domains.

For my startup Story Squad, an ed-tech platform that empowers kids' reading, writing and drawing, I was able to talk big picture strategy with Matteo Tittarelli (he's amazing!), CRO and landing page design with Tim Cakir, UX dashboard design with Jean Kaluza (whose experience designing for kids at Disney was super impactful!), and set up monthly coaching with Christoph Schachner.

Wowzah. Still definitely pinching myself. :)

Foti and Jessica have also been incredibly active in helping me get as much value out of Growthmentor community as possible.

It's only been two weeks, and this is the single best investment I've made in my startup's growth.

As a startup company, I don't know where I would be without the help of GrowthMentor - definitely a lot further behind, that's for sure!

The service and top quality mentors offered at GrowthMentor is like instantly joining an exclusive high-performance network of successful entrepreneurs and service providers, all there to help you reach your goals.

The GrowthMentor network has been my fast-track to education across multiple fronts of getting a startup launched, many I had no idea about before becoming a member.

When starting a company, it is very easy to get lost in the sea of service providers offered.

GrowthMentor has saved me lots of time, money, and stress because they are my one stop shop for all my questions around launching my business.

I should also mention that the founders of GrowthMentor (Foti & Jess) started their company for all the right reasons and it is very evident how much they care about their people and being able to get entrepreneurs create and reach their full potential.

I actually hesitate sharing info about Growthmentor on my personal network, because I don't want it to become too crowded and lose all the great stuff it has.

However, I'm the biggest fan.

Every session I've had (so far I had 5-6) was different, but all share some similarities:

  • my mentors are no-BS
  • the intro is short, and they all really try to understand my biz, without shooting random tips
  • all of them are super-nice, they choose to be your mentor and dedicate their full attention while on the call.

It's really hard to believe that all of this is possible for the price, and I hope i can be grandfathered in my current rate forever, because I'm now using GM for every doubt and professional feedback.

My business is in e-learning, and although I personally think GM is best for SAAS, I'm getting a massive value, too.

I'm in love with the value this platform brings to me.

It's easy to point to GrowthMentor being my favorite thing I discovered in 2018.

As a founder of a young startup, you have to wear every hat, and it's easy to get overwhelmed by things like:

  • what technology tools should I use?
  • how do I actually build a solid MVP?
  • how do I attract customers?
  • how do I find product market fit?
  • what marketing channels/strategies should I use?

GrowthMentor makes it incredibly easy to connect with highly skilled people in a variety of areas, to get advice that will end up saving you time, money, and headaches.

I can't recommend this platform enough.

Seriously, give it a try and book a session. You will be very impressed.

I have spoken to over 10 mentors via GrowthMentor platform. (most of them free to speak with) The sheer value it has provided my company is invaluable.

We don't waste weeks running an experiment, Instead, we could go make a couple of clicks and get the right advice from the right marketers without wasting hours interviewing, searching & all that non-sense that sucks away time.

Experts in all types of niches such as Cold outreach, FB ads, SEO, link building are available.

You name a niche and they have someone who has done it for years.

I liked the idea of this platform and have greatly benefited from it

I have been looking for such an amazing service for quite some time, and I am very pleased with the result.

GrowthMentor is a great place to ask real questions to other growth marketers who've "been there, done that".

It's refreshing to be able to bounce ideas around and get outside opinions and advice from experts in the field, not just your own team.

The on-boarding is really good, and I've been very pleased by the booking system with mentors. Jess and Foti are very supportive, so you never feel alone, and the Slack group is quite active.

Growthmentor feels like a secret weapon. I'm thrilled!

I had 1/2 a business before GrowthMentor...

I had identified a big pain point, had an idea for how to solve it, and some product prototypes. I knew I needed help with go to market.

My sessions with GrowthMentors helped me realize what I was missing: I didn't know my ideal customer, no brand promise, no unique value proposition.

The mentors helped point me in the right direction with execution.

Then I used them to help validate and provide strategic direction on next products I was considering to refine my roadmap.

Before GrowthMentor I had a product, and through my sessions, created a business.

Growthmentor is the best mentoring community out there!

I’ve tried quite a few on demand consulting platforms in the past but non of them can compare with Growthmentor.

For an annual fee of $200 you can get advice from more different mentors/experts in your field - as many times as you want.

You could easily pay few thousand dollars on any other platform.

I think every entrepreneur should use this on regular basis.

Foti and his team are really doing a great job!

I have been using GrowthMentor for few weeks now and I love it!

I have connected with 5 mentors now and it is just amazing how I was able to find these specialists that know exactly where I am at in the business and the next steps I should be focusing on and what I should not be spending time on at the moment.

To get this feedback and guide you through the process of setting up a B2B SaaS platform is really amazing!

Thank you Foti and the team for the great platform.

I felt like I was stealing!

The amount of valuable and useable information I received from Jess Bahr was awesome. Her experience is something everyone should tap into. Just the simple idea of commenting more on other social media in the late afternoon evening hours has made a difference in the response I am getting on Instagram.

She affirmed that I was in the right track with content, but a few tweaks in my activity has made a solid change in the actions of my following. Could not recommend her more highly!

GrowthMentors has made a wonderful impact on my business and I plan to schedule several more calls. Thank you!!

I have been using GrowthMentor now for about 8 months.

I've met with 17 different people amongst many different channels and strategic levels of marketing.

I'd say at least 90% of my sessions have lead me to making decisions which have had an impact on my business.

Moreover, I've collected countless tips, ideas, and recommendations from mentors which has made the membership fee so unbelievably worth it.

Any marketer who wants to invest in himself/herself and marketing development/growth, should 100% use this platform!

I've been struggling to connect with fellow marketers and get any advice or validate my ideas for a while now.

Growthmentor is helping me to solve that problem by providing a super easy access to the best marketers out there.

Need to create a content strategy? Or structure your pricing plans? Or need to increase backlinks?

You can definitely find someone who would give you no BS, useful and actionable advice.

And if you aren't ready to pay just yet, there are tons of mentors offering advice for free too.

I had to deliver a 5min pitch for my early stage startup as a part of a Startup Visa application process, and I had zero pitching experience.

GrowthMentor recommended me a wonderful mentor who walked me through the whole process from zero to a pitch plan with all key details.

My application has been approved largely because of his help.

The whole process was pretty smooth and enjoyable. I'll be definitely using GrowthMentor again and again.

The best thing about this service is that I feel pretty confident about my startup now.

Rather than getting overwhelmed by Internet advice from 100's of bloggers, I know I can always get an advice from a proven professional that would target my specific business/situation.

My friend recommended Growth Mentor and this has been the best discovery of the last 12 months.

I've had already 2 sessions with marketers who have spent 1 hour of their time each to go through our marketing funnel and strategy and have given me enormous amount of tips and great ways to improve.

This will be my most favorite tool for the next years to come.

All marketers out there, you need to check it. There're mentors that can advise you on growth hacking, SEO, content, conversion, website and so on.

Now there are at least 130 professionals with 5+ years of experience from a variety of companies and industries that are even eager to help out pro-bono.

With the landscape of marketing and data evolving changing by the day, it's impossible to keep up with everything.

With GrowthMentor, you can find up-to-date specialists and generalists that will help provide insight that would otherwise take months or even years to develop yourself.

It's like having a board of advisors that you can tap into at any point.

Whether you're lacking confidence, searching for a new way to get things done, or learning new expertise/skills, finding a growth mentor will help you achieve your goals faster.

Being able to ask someone who’s been there to show you the way... and that's exactly what's Growthmentor is doing, giving you access to a pool of serious people with experience and ready to help.

Honest and user-friendly, give it a try :)

I found Growth Mentor when I googled, "How to find a marketing mentor".

Great service. I spoke to 3 consultants at length and all were very knowledgeable and didn't try to sell me anything after the fact.

I am really impressed with what they offer. 10/10

Growthmentor is a fantastic platform that comes helpful in so many ways.

I use it to get help on the topic I need when I need it.

Being in the process of launching my own agency, I had the pleasure to have a session with one of the mentors which gave me some great insights from his much longer career and helped me shape my next steps.

I've used similar platforms before but GrowthMentor is focused on marketing/growth.

The experts available are some of the best you'll find, all collected in one place.

This is a phenomenal resource.

Frequently asked questions

People make the world go round.

Sorry bots, you may be impressive, but I’d still rather talk to a human any day.

We believe in the lost art of simply “having a chat”.

Growthmentor comes down to people helping people.

The value we bring to the table is our rigorous vetting process, everyone on the platform is here for a reason!

Beyond just knowing their stuff, we ensure that all growth mentors are pretty damn cool!

Simple answer

Because they are nice people.

Extended answer

  • They genuinely enjoy helping.
  • 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.
  • It keeps them on their toes. No better way to sharpen your skills than to teach someone else!
  • 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 situation- 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?!
GrowthMentor is an invite-only mentorship platform. We’ve established a comprehensive four-step application process to help us to identify the individuals who will flourish as growth mentors.

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.

GrowthMentor is a GIVE FIRST platform.

This policy literally enforces that.

This allows members to get access to high level advice at no extra cost.

If an extremely experienced mentor comes on to the platform with a super impressive resume, they will do their first few calls for free – so even bootstrapped startups can get on a call with them.

With all of that being said, we do believe that mentors should be able to choose if they want to be reimbursed for the time after they get their feet wet and get some experience under the belt.

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).

It is up to you!

Some people prefer to have the video on during calls and others do not.

If you have a strong preference either way, it is a good idea to communicate this before you schedule a session.

Mentors are able to set in their profile whether they’re open to using video.

Three choices:
  • Skype
  • Zoom
  • Google Hangouts

Mentors and mentees are able to set their communication tools in their profile settings.

It is a good idea to connect with the other person once the session is accepted and the details are given. This ensures that the correct details were given and when it is time to start, you can start on time.

Decide your session duration based on your needs.

15 Minutes:

Perfect for a couple of quick questions or a brief chat about tools or best practices. You can say a lot in 15 minutes if you’re a quick and efficient conversationalist!

30 Minutes:

Enough time to go over a bunch of stuff and really get into the nitty-gritty about your business case and scenario. The sweet spot before conversation fatigue starts setting in.

60 Minutes:

Good idea to have an outline of what you’d like to talk about prepared. Ideal if you want to bring a few team members into the call so that everyone can get their say in.

Online sessions with mentors have no set or defined structure. Each and every circumstance is different, so each session will be unique.

Basic session guidelines:

  • Mentors are responsible for driving the direction of the call.
  • They’ll be there to listen to your story and identify critical points in your decision making and help you understand your situation.
  • Make sure you share information relevant to the context of the problem that you’re trying to solve. This will help the mentor understand what’s important to you and give you usable insights based on their experience.
  • If you have technical questions about tools or software, the mentors are here to answer them, sharing your screen will help the mentors can get a better idea of your workflow.

  • Startup founders with massive heart and vision but a bootstrapped budget for growth
  • Ambitious growth marketers that want to learn from others' successes (and mistakes)
  • CMOs and VP's of Growth that are hungry for for their assumptions to be challenged
  • Product managers that want to approach product development from a growth-driven mindset
  • Performance marketers that want to learn from top 1% Google and Facebook Ads experts
  • Traditional marketers that want to transition into a growth role but are overwhelmed
