OUR LEADING MENTORS & EXPERTS

We thank all our mentors & experts from all over Europe – many of them travelled to our events from other cities – who passionately and voluntarily shared their know-how and helped our participating teams to develop their business concepts significantly further.
As an acknowledgement, here is a small, random selection of the more than 500 mentors who participated in Startup Live events over the years and many continue to do so. Feel free to go to our event section to find the mentors that took part in a specific city and year.
