What we look for in a mentor
As a mentor, you should be able to add significant value through your relevant industry experience, your understanding of the healthcare marketplace, and your network connections.
We are interested in individuals representing all types of organizations including: Hospitals, Payers (including CMS), ACOs, Medical Device Companies/Manufacturers, Diagnostic and Pharma/Drug Development Companies, Clinical Laboratories, Long Term Care Facilities, FDA, Venture Firms and Angel Groups, etc.
What is expected of a mentor
Connect with entrepreneurs for a 20-30 minute conversation at a point in time when the entrepreneur needs insights on the area of the market that matches your expertise. (This is part of the “Lean” startup approach and is referred to as “customer discovery.”)
XLerateHealth staff will only reach out to you when we feel the entrepreneur is at a stage where they can maximize their learnings – and you can choose if you
want to (and have time to) connect. After your first interaction with the entrepreneur, you can decide if follow-up is appropriate.
XLerateHealth will ask you to provide a high resolution photo and the url to your LinkedIn profile so that we can add you to our online mentor community. We may also ask you to be featured in our newsletter and/or social media as we frequently highlight mentors involved in the program.
