Each cohort of Remarkable’s accelerator includes 7-10 startups which are supported by a team of expert mentors and coaches. The contributions of these volunteers are key to the growth of these startup founders over the 16 week program.
If you don’t have a reason to apply for the Remarkable accelerator program but still would like to make a difference then we encourage you to apply to be a mentor or coach for our upcoming cohort.
