Mentorship is a core part of the Galvanize mission. We aim to provide aspiring and serial entrepreneurs alike with the opportunity to connect with industry experts in a variety of fields with a diverse set of viewpoints and backgrounds. In service of this, we host mentor office hours weekly, and matchmake mentors with the entrepreneurs whose needs are aligned with their experience & skill sets.


"This session alone made my entire investment in my desk at Galvanize worth it. I can’t wait to sign up for more sessions and really start to take full advantage of being part of this community!"
