I am currently an active mentor and advisor to the following foundations:
I’ve taught various topic on entrepreneurship in Singapore, New York, and Croatia for FI. The Founder Institute is like a pre-accelerator program to prepare people who want to transition from corporate into the startup world. Classes are taught at night to enable those who still have full-time jobs to participate.
Apart from being on the Advisory Board of LSM, I’m frequently a judge and mentor at LSM New York, San Francisco, and Silicon Valley. I’ve also done remote mentoring for Rwanda and Pakistan. The Lean Startup Machine Weekend is a 3-day intensive workshop where participants team up to create, test and validate assumptions for an idea through Customer Development principles and rapid prototyping an MVP (Minimum Viable Product).
I’m am ambassador and advisor at Peter Thiel‘s 20 Under 20 Fellowship. The Thiel Fellowship brings together some of the world’s most creative and motivated young people under 20 years of age, by giving a no-strings-attached grant of $100,000 to skip college and focus on their work, their research, and their self-education. They are mentored by our network of visionary thinkers, investors, scientists, and entrepreneurs, who provide guidance and business connections that can’t be replicated in any classroom.
I’ve been through two accelerators:
Summer Batch 4: May 2012 – August 2012
Fall Batch 3: August 2010 – January 2011
