Stanford MBA Mentor Program kicks off

Local Food Lab is excited to partner with the Stanford Graduate School of Business to start our first MBA Mentor Program. Each #LFL3 startup will be paired with a Stanford MBA student to brainstorm and workshop their business plan over 6 in-person sessions.

During Local Food Lab’s Accelerator, business models can change daily and weekly as the cohort takes in the curriculum, customer feedback, and input from our network of over 80 industry leaders.

The MBA Mentors will be an incredibly valuable addition to the Local Food Lab family as a consistent advisor for each entrepreneur during the program, helping spot trends, challenges and opportunities with each iteration.

We hope this will be a unique learning experience for both parties and look forward to continuing the MBA Mentor Program with the Columbia Business School during our New York Accelerator this spring.

A huge thank you to the MBA Mentors involved—Christine Su and Luca Beltrami, both MBA candidates at Stanford, are helping spearhead this new program and we couldn't be happier with the collaboration. 

Below is a list of the MBA Mentors. We hope you are able to meet them at the Venture Fair on March 19th at the Stanford School of Design.
