Join First Round's Mentor Community
At its core, Fast Track is a 90-day people accelerator running from August 15th to November 15th that matches experts with First Round-backed founders and their team members for 1-1 coaching. Mentorship pairs meet bi-weekly for three months, in person. We offer a powerful matching process and carefully curated resources for you to maximize the impact you have on your Mentee. Over the course of three months, you'll guide your Mentee through the challenges of startup life, help cultivate their leadership skills and leave a lasting impact as a trusted advisor.
Our Current Tracks
Fast Track is built on the belief that when you tap into the wisdom and generosity of a community, incredible things happen. As a Mentor, you'll join impactful Mentor Cohorts in key areas of interest, such as angel investing, advising, founding and more. You'll receive invitations to intimate 16-person dinners, fireside chats with First Round Partners, digital experiences and programming designed to foster lasting relationships and deep connection. The First Round way involves community, storytelling, laughter, and genuine connections galore.

Some of our Mentors are former First Round founders, angel investors we co-invest with, top operators we've had relationships with for 10+ years, and brilliant folks we only recently met. Most of our Mentors have 10+ years of experience — but we make exceptions for people with an uncanny ability to coach and wisdom beyond their years.
