For Mentors & Advisors


Early-stage companies are lead by passionate entrepreneurs who need help turning their vision into a successful enterprise. The Spencer Trask Angel Network provides these entrepreneurs with the support they need by matching them with the right executive resources in a manner that benefits both parties.

Executives with a broad range of product, scientific, marketing, financial and operational success join our network because they want to be part of a winning team that creates something extraordinary. Bringing substantial value to early-stage ventures can be a rewarding experience, both professionally and financially.

How You Can Get Involved




As members of the Spencer Trask Angel Network, experienced executives provide counsel and guidance to help move early-stage companies forward. Mentors & advisors may help an entrepreneur identify a new target market, recommend candidates for a key management role, introduce a prospective distributor or assist in identifying prospective investors. They will typically serve as a member of the board of directors or advisory board and may fill an interim management role if needed. These roles allow mentors & advisors to help set the new venture on the right course.

Building a company from the ground up is no easy task, and Spencer Trask is as selective with the people it assigns to its companies as it is with the companies it chooses to support. We’re looking for extraordinary individuals to work with our Angel Network on what we believe to be are world-changing companies. We’re looking for individuals who have spent a career in specific sectors and know the dynamics and players in those markets. We invite these individuals to join our network.
