MentorCruise Sessions

Book a "Introductory Call" Session in minutes

If you're looking for a mentor, and you're just not sure about how this all works – this should be for you. In a casual, informal introductory call, a mentor will introduce themselves, show you around the platform, explain how our mentorships work and explain how they would set up a mentorship with you.

This session is perfect if you're looking for a longterm mentor, but you're just not sure how this can work – or if you already set eyes on a specific mentor, and want to get to know them beforehand.
