How to schedule a meeting with a startup as a mentor
Before you can invite a startup for a meeting, you must have availabilities of type coaching. Learn how to add availabilities to your account here.
Sending an invitation to a startup
On the side menu of your account, click on the Startup Portfolio. From the mentor dashboard, you will see all the startups you are currently assigned to. From here, you can send an email invitation for the startup(s) to book a meeting with you based on your availabilities.
- On the top right corner of that page, click on the button called
Send Invite. If you don't have availabilities of type coaching in your account within the next 2 weeks, you will see a warning message, and you will be able to click on it to go add availabilities in your account.
- Once availabilities are added, you can first select the startup you want to meet within the To: select button. From there, you can select the startup(s) you want to invite you to meet with you.
- You can also modify the text of that email.
- Adjust the length of the meeting you want to have.
- And press the button
Before you send the invitation, you can also double-check who is inviting from the box called Number of meetings being scheduled.
Upon being booked
Every time someone books a meeting with you, you will receive an email and an in-app notification to let you know. If you have the calendar integration done, you will also see a new meeting in your calendar being added automatically. To know more about the calendar integration click here.

An admin of your incubator/accelerator might also create a one on one event for your community with you. If they do, they will have the option of adding availabilities on your behalf or sending you a request to add your preferred availabilities yourself.
Once you do, the event will auto-published to the community, and startups will be able to book meetings with you.
