Mentors play an essential role in the VelocityTX Incubator and Accelerator programs. Clients of VelocityTX are matched with mentors based on their specific business needs. The VelocityTX Mentoring Program is designed to create and support mentor/mentee relationships that will increase the chance for success for clients of the various programs offered by VelocityTX. The mentor and client are matched and coordinated by a VelocityTX member.
VelocityTX has formed a partnership with EPIcenter, another San Antonio-based Incubator, to offer one online application for both organizations. Please be sure to opt-in to be a VelocityTX mentor on the application.
