Work with one of our 120+ entrepreneurs-in-residence (EIRs) on a project that can help move your company forward.



Our mentorship services can help climate tech startups accelerate their path to commercialization. Client companies work with our highly qualified EIRs to complete deliverables within a defined project scope. Mentors are expected to work with (not for!) a client company to coach, guide, and support. Additional EIRs can be added in response to changing client needs. 

Examples of potential projects:

  • Customer Discovery. Work to refine and validate your business model hypotheses. 

  • Pitch coaching. Get direct feedback on your deck and presentation to prepare for an upcoming meeting.

  • Grant opportunities. Receive help finding, assessing fit, and refining your submission.
