How long is GT Startup Exchange mentorship?
Mentorship is approximately 3 months long, and runs in both the Fall and Spring semesters.
Spring 2023 mentorship will occur from early-February to mid-April.
What do I learn during the mentorship process?
During mentorship, you will learn about the basics of customer discovery, value proposition, and revenue channels.
You will be taught different ways to validate business hypotheses as well as how to construct a proper pitch deck.
What is the time commitment for the mentorship program?
Attending weekly lectures and completing assignments take ~2-3 hours each week.
During the semester, you will also have a midterm VC assignment as well as a final startup pitch. Those who finish the program will be considered for CREATE-X in order to advance their idea.
