The Startup Milwaukee Mentorship program is dedicated to supporting Milwaukee software, mobile, hardware and technology focused startups & entrepreneurs by connecting them to mentors from the corporate, investment, entrepreneurial and academic communities.

Every four months, Startup Milwaukee will accept up to six startups/entrepreneurs into its Mentorship Program. The program is designed to match the startup/entrepreneur with a qualified mentor based on the stage of the startup, industry and identified challenges. The entrepreneurs will also have access to a mentor network built from key partner organizations and companies in southeastern Wisconsin.


Startup Milwaukee believes that mentorship is an essential part of growing and developing entrepreneurs and has worked hard to pull together an extensive network of experts to guide and support startup development in Milwaukee. This exclusive network provides opportunities for entrepreneurs to engage business leaders about customer acquisition, investment cultivation and other growth opportunities while challenging their business models and identifying and refining their minimum viable product.
