Become a mentor

Mentors guide motivated teams of students in the Technology Innovation Program and X-Lab, helping students take their projects to the next level. BU Spark! seeks three types of mentors on a rolling basis:

  • Innovation coaches are mentors who work with students in the Technology Innovation Program, guiding them through the process of developing a technology product from idea to launch (or minimum viable product). Innovation Coaches have general experience in technology project management or entrepreneurship. UX design experts are also a great fit for this mentoring role. 
  • Technical innovation specialists are mentors who guide students through critical issues associated with developing and building out their products.
  • Interaction design specialists are mentors who work with students focus on interaction design on behalf of larger student teams. These students collaborate with computer science students by advising and designing the UI and UX of a technical product. These mentors are critical in helping students overcome design barriers.
