Joining WEVE as a Mentor?

Our Programs leverage a vast network of Mentors with 600+ industry experts, visionary investors, and corporate leaders committed to advancing innovation by opening the US Market to global innovators.

WEVE’s mentors come from diverse backgrounds, industries, seniority levels, and expertise. The most crucial factor in mentorship is their mindset. We operate on a “give-first” mentality, meaning we work with mentors (and startups) who believe helping others in their entrepreneurial journey is a reward in and of itself. Great mentors listen, empathize, and do their best to support with their time, care, network, and expertise.

“Embark on a transformative journey with the WEVE Acceleration Mentorship Program: Ignite Innovation, Empower Startups and Become the catalyst for success – mentor, connect, and shape the future of groundbreaking startups with WEVE!”  Frances Simowitz
