A new experience for established tech operators looking to give back and gain a new community.
First Round Fast Track is a brand new take on mentorship. This 90-day program matches incredible experts with First Round-backed founders and execs for 1-1 mentorship.
Mentors have maximum impact on the next generation of entrepreneurs as well as access to a unique community of other spectacular company builders.
Why Fast Track?
Fast Track delivers a remarkable experience for mentors and entrepreneurs.
- First Round entrepreneurs need incredible people to help them fast track their learnings, stay focused on the right stuff, and grow their companies. Each First Round-backed exec will receive personalized, high-quality mentorship to help them unblock and achieve their potential.
- Mentors are matched with a rising star based on their specific talents. The 90-day structure creates the most impact in the shortest amount of time.
- Mentors get a lot more than just the opportunity to mentor. They also get to tap into the First Round Community.
After experimenting for the last two years across five cohorts and hundreds of participants, we've uncovered the secret sauce that makes mentorship work.
Now we're ready to scale and find the operators who will help mold the next generation of entrepreneurs.

What You'll Do As a Fast Track Mentor
Your time as a Mentor will run from August to October. You'll meet and support your founder or senior executive to help them meet the specific big hairy challenges they've set out to accomplish specifically through this program.
Through bi-weekly working sessions, you'll offer neutral, third-party wisdom and insights, plus advice on how to:
Achieve their bold goals
Attack specific functional areas
Manage and lead
Navigate career paths
Recognize blind spots
Make connections and open doors
You'll have a massive impact on someone special in a tiny amount of time. You'll also become a member of our extended First Round Community through intimate meet-and-greets with First Round partners, coffee connections, access to our internal network, and much more.
We're excited to amplify your work, introduce you to First Round entrepreneurs, and give you the chance to deepen your experience as a coach and advisor.
