  • What is the difference between mentors and advisors?
    Advisors help teams with specific tech/industry questions. They typically meet with the team 1-2 times. Mentors have frequent touch points with the team and help drive progress over time. They typically meet 2-4 times per month.
  • What is the time committment?
    Advisors: 2-4 hours total per team. The time commitment for an advisor is the length of a call/meeting and subsequent follow up ​ Mentors: 2-4 hours per month. Mentors have rolling team check in meetings
  • Can I mentor remotely?
    Absolutely! We welcome mentors from all over the US/world.
  • Is there compensation for mentoring?
    Our mentoring is voluntary, with H4XLabs offering no compensation. In addition, we don’t think it’s appropriate to ask for equity from the startups in exchange for any light mentor engagements (i.e., a few calls and meetings). ​ If a mentor were to step into a more involved role, such as to take a board seat or do part-time work, the startups are welcome to discuss a more formal arrangement.
