Our Mentors

Mentorship is often overhyped, measured in quantity versus quality, and used as a marketing gimmick, when in reality, many of the mentors you’ll only see in photos.

At Nex Cubed, you’ll actually meet with people who are in your industry, or who can give you valuable insights on building a successful company, because they’ve been in your shoes. We believe in helping you accelerate your business not slowing you down with useless activities. That’s why we pre-match you with mentors based on reciprocal interest. No meaningless mentoring sessions. Our Mentors are relevantly qualified, appropriately timed in the lifecycle, and Socratic in their approach.
