Mentor Application

We're honored that you are considering becoming a mentor for Third Derivative. Mentors are an important way that D3 helps climate tech startups progress through the valleys of death, to scale, and to impact. As a mentor, you will help support startups, along with the program staff, corporate partners, investors, and an SPV of high-net-worth individuals. Some things to note about being a D3 mentor: 
  • We are always looking for both climate tech subject matter experts and seasoned entrepreneurs from various fields. 
  • We ask that you enter the program as volunteer, with a genuine desire to help. If a commercial relationship results from relationships formed, we welcome that and see it as a sign of success. We just ask to be kept in the loop so we can track things.
  • The amount of time you spend as a mentor is up to you. 
  • If you are accepted, you will be welcomed to the program Slack where we will try to pair you with startups that match your skills, and we also encourage you to proactively reach out.
