Meet Our
Mentors & Entrepreneurs In Residence

VelocityTX mentors are a select group of industry leaders, many of whom have experience bringing their own bioscience and healthcare companies to exit. They’ll provide support to your company through one-on-one or team mentoring and lend you valuable insight to help you make key business decisions.

Along with the mentors, participants in the VelocityTX Incubator and the BioGlobal Accelerator have access to one-on-one coaching from Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIRs). Our EIRs are experts in business and the bioscience and healthcare industries who are certified in the proven GrowthWheel methodology, which they use to track the milestones and progress of each company. Using GrowthWheel, your EIR coach will work with you to develop a 30/60/90-day plan to scale your company to the next level
