Via short video messages, we give people access to the mentors they look up to and admire. We are a seed-stage startup backed by General Catalyst, Goodwater Capital, and SNÖ Ventures to name a few.

About you

  1. You engage in meaningful conversations: As a Business Development Representative (BDR), you will be dedicated to listening carefully to potential customers in order to develop and lead an engaging conversation. To do so, you'll study and learn about subjects that impact founders, such as company formation, fundraising, customer acquisition, sales, and product development.

  2. You demonstrate value: In your conversations, you will lead with insights first and the product second. Instead of discussing what our product can do, you'll talk about how seasoned experts and mentors assist entrepreneurs develop successful firms. You'll tell a fascinating story about the hurdles that most founders face, followed by anecdotes about how our mentors have helped others overcome similar challenges.

  3. You prepare intentionally & proactively: To succeed, you must make it a mission to be at the top of your game every day. You must be able to efficiently manage your time and prepare in advance for calls and meetings so that you can fully concentrate on the person with whom you are speaking.

  4. You focus on long-term growth (not short-term sales): We are committed to meeting our monthly, quarterly, and annual targets and continuing to grow Mentorcam while providing exceptional customer service. We never compromise “just to make the sale” and believe that we can create value for us, for our clients, and for our investors.

  5. You’re curious & coachable: We think differently about many things, especially sales. Your responsibility is to be curious about how we are doing things and to be coachable by taking feedback seriously.
