Our mentors are key to the success of Entrepreneur Academe.
Entrepreneur Academe provides Angel Academe members, mentors and partners with the opportunity to get to know and support ambitious, women-led technology startups.
From March 2017, we'll be running regular sessions on on Investment Readiness in Central London. These sessions bring our entrepreneurs and mentors together to meet, network and share knowledge. Most mentoring is in groups, so we learn from each other as well as share our experience.
Our mentors (women and men) consist of experienced entrepreneurs who've successfully raised funding; angel and institutional investors who've made investments into high growth, early stage tech startups; and investment advisors.
Between them, our 2016 cohort raised over £4.3m in investment during the course of the programme, as well as increasing turnover by X4 and employment by X3. We're incredibly proud of our entrepreneurs and having played a part in their amazing achievements and we look forward to supporting their continuing growth as well as new businesses in 2017.

JOIN US AS A MENTOR.
We're looking for additional mentors to join us in 2017, especially early stage investors in tech and entrepreneurs who've previously raised funding. We know you're busy, so we ask that you attend a minimum of 2 of our mentoring sessions or events over the course of the year. Ideally, we'd also like you to be accessible to some entrepreneurs outside these sessions and to advise and make new introductions where you can.
