GEN Academy for Mentors

Are you a mentor affiliated with an incubator/accelerator or providing entrepreneurial support alone? GEN Academy offers certification to mentors by assimilating global best practices to effective stage-appropriate mentorship intervention.

GEN Accelerates boasts a truly international network of certified mentors from across the globe (100+ countries) that serve entrepreneurs, governments, corporations, NGOs, universities and other institutions.

Our mentors are seasoned professionals blending applied and actionable experience with deep industry knowledge. Most individuals in our network has at least ten (10) years experience in their field, and almost all in-network mentors have participated in some entrepreneurial venture as a founding member or has worked in corporate settings in senior roles.

GEN Accelerates programs leverage our mentor network, but clients can craft their own mentor support programs or certify their network mentors to reach the standard of GEN certified mentors.
