It is a unique opportunity to contribute to young leaders and innovators who will realize the solutions of the future.

As a mentor, your mission will be to meet weekly with the project you are working with (usually through video calls) to validate its progress within the platform.

Our incubation team is always accessible and will share with you resources for great mentoring, while following a structured methodology so you don't have to worry about what comes next.

You will connect with the rest of the mentors in the program in the face-to-face meetings we have prepared for all of you, where you will be able to share learning and challenges.

The best incubation tools

The Bridge for Billions methodology is based on developing a business plan from scratch while participants are surrounded by a supportive community: mentors, fellow entrepreneurs and our incubation team.

Our online incubation tools allow entrepreneurs to experiment, research and document their ideas step-by-step so that at the end of the program they can download their own business plan in PDF.
