Thanks for your interest in mentoring with MassBioDrive! Mentors play an invaluable role in helping MassBioDrive companies grow and develop. By sharing their knowledge, advice, and connections pro bono and without the expectation of reward or compensation, MassBioDrive mentors can help shape the next generation of biotechs while also giving back to the innovation ecosystem.  
 
For our 2022 programs, each company will match with an interdisciplinary team mentors that will serve as an advisory board throughout the course of each 8-week program. The information that you provide will be used by the selected MassBioDrive companies to better understand your skills and experience.

Section 4: Mentor Commitment 
Selected MassBioDrive mentors are expected to be able to spend 1 – 3 hours per week with their companies for the course of the 8-week cohort. At the center of this commitment is a weekly meeting, where the company will ask advice about the content in that week’s business module before providing general updates on the MassBioDrive project map the company will develop during the first week of the program. The meetings will coincide with that week's expert curriculum session, which mentors are encouraged to join alongside their companies. Beyond that meeting, mentors are expected to be proactive and responsive to their company’s needs and engage in MassBioDrive’s networking and community events.
