During the last 2 cohorts of YCombinator Startup School, I mentored over 150 startup founders and as I know the demand is great, I have decided to open up some of my time for a few mentees.
I am available for ongoing mentorship or single-sessions and can answer most of your startup, and small business questions within 24 hours.
I believe deeply that entrepreneurs are the tip of the spear guiding humanity forward. So I choose to empower others to accelerate the advancement of humanity by enabling more everyday entrepreneurs and ideas today!

A few testimonials from recent mentees:
"Anyone thinking about pulling the trigger on Greg's offer? Do it! I just had a call with Greg last night and he provided more value and time than I could have asked for. He spent literally 2 hours on the phone with me going over ways my business can thrive. He didn't sugar coat anything, he pointed out flaws but didn't end there, he gave actionable steps to get me to where I need to be. Well worth my time and I'm sure it will be worth yours as well."
- Gabriel Ramirez - Callateral
"I asked Greg for some help on my YC application and he provided a ton of value not only just on my application but also provided a good designer feedback on my landing pages and suggestions that definitely helped me along the way since I'm a solo founder. Greg is a great resource and I hope you all take advantage of this!"
- Nik Kotov - Frontline
"Great startup insights and strategic direction setting advice Greg! Thank you very much for the time, commitment, and resilience. For those who may need advice in the context of entrepreneurship, I highly recommend Greg Zen!"
