Silicon Valley’s Nomadic Mentors to Collaborate with X2 Labs
A global community of startup experts is looking to help develop accelerator eco-systems in the Nordics. Nomadic Mentors, a selective group of serial entrepreneurs and technologists from Silicon Valley and all over the world who have raised over $2 billion in Venture Capital, will collaborate with Stavanger-based hyper-accelerator X2 Labs.
"There’s a lack of strong mentors in Norway and previously one had to travel far to access such talent. So we’re incredibly excited to bring this competency right to Stavanger to support and inspire the companies in our programs,” says Nomadic Mentor and X2 Labs Partner Sean Percival
The Nomadic Mentors can help drive companies’ ability to scale. They will sit face to face with X2 Labs startup teams and can advise them on how to launch a global context.
“This is a great match,” says Percival. “X2 Labs has fast-moving, talented teams that are hungry to learn so they can build great companies that solve real global problems. Nomadic Mentors entrepreneurs have proven track records of start-up success. In addition to invaluable expertise, they are great motivators.”
X2 Labs CEO Sean Paul Shanor agrees. “We are really out to reinvent entrepreneurship, and a collaboration with this global talent pool is a once in a lifetime opportunity”
“We are truly excited to see the west coast of Norway attract global entrepreneurship talent to build new high-growth industries for the future,” says X2 Labs Chairman Christian Rangen.
The details of the newly agreed collaboration will be worked out in the coming year. In addition to working with entrepreneurs, the Nomadic Mentors will meet with local business and civic leaders, and look forward to exploring the mountains and fjords of Norway.
X2 Labs develops startup teams to co-found companies with global growth ambitions which solve real market challenges. X2 Labs 4-week hyper-accelerator programs address a range of themes from industries primed for growth, including Smart Cities, Digital Tourism, Food, Fintech and Digital Health.
Nomadic Mentors is a Silicon Valley-based group of experienced entrepreneurs and technologists who have collectively raised over $2 billion in Venture Capital. It was founded in 2015 in order to connect quality startup and innovation mentors with the people and places who need them. The highly select group of founders, builders, and mentors travel the world to share their advice with developing startup ecosystems.
