Questions uniquely matched to you.
You only receive requests from entrepreneurs that match your experience, interests, and locations, unbeknownst to the entrepreneur.
You control if, how, and when to help.
Decide right from your email if you can share advice, offer a call, or offer a meeting (incl. virtual). Not available? No big deal. We'll simply engage the next-best partner in the queue.
Help right from your email.
No app to download or log into. You receive and respond to requests right from your email. If you are available to help, we'll share your response with the entrepreneur.

What kind of questions will I receive?
Entrepreneurs are encouraged to ask for help with any needs around starting and building a business.
How will I be matched to relevant questions?
When you sign up for Connect, we will ask you about your professional background (skills, experience) and preferences for assisting entrepreneurs. The combination of both helps us match you to questions we believe you will find relevant.
How often will I get requests to help?
The default expectation is that you will be able to assist once a week. When you help, you will not be asked again until the following week.
Do I need to answer every question?
No. We match alums based on availability, proximity, and competency (among other factors) and take into account how often a partner has helped in the past.
