Interested in becoming a Purple Prize Mentor?

Mentors play a significant role in the Purple Prize as critics and guides throughout the difficult and unique startup process. They are a key source of value in the Building Phase using their past experiences and expertise to provide Purple Prize teams advice and an outside opinion. Purple Prize mentors are volunteers who have significant experience in business development, programming, engineering, or finance.
