Key Program Details 

Eligibility: To be eligible to become a mentor, we ask that you have at least 10 years of industry experience and are at a point in your career where you can provide guidance, insight, and support to a team of international entrepreneurs. 

Time commitment: Our program is highly flexible, allowing you and your mentee team to schedule meetings that work for both parties. You’ll work with your team to determine what kind of support will be most useful, such as specific feedback related to entrepreneurship, starting a business, innovation, commercializing an idea, technical information, personal encouragement and motivation, and more. The program includes an Incubator and Accelerator phase and runs for 24 weeks, and you have the option to mentor in one or both programs. 

Register Now: You can register to become a mentor at any time and be matched with a team. Teams can view your mentor profile and associated availability and will request your mentorship via our mentoring system. You will receive an email alert, and then based on their request and their ‘mentee’ profile, you can accept or decline their request. 

Join us today in supporting the next generation of plastic pollution innovators and make a lasting impact.
