Select Global Women in Tech Mentorship Network


Calling all mentors! We are so thrilled to host the second annual Select Global Women in Tech (SGWIT) Mentorship Network as part of the 2022 SelectUSA Investment Summit this June. Mentoring applications are open until Friday, May 6, 11:59 pm EDT.

The SelectUSA team is proud to bring together resources from across the United States to support international female entrepreneurs on their U.S. investment journey. We will introduce international female tech entrepreneurs to the U.S. market with the support of SelectUSA’s traditional data, counseling services, and new training opportunities.

If you have a passion for helping people, the SGWIT Mentorship Network is for you. SGWIT is designed to support mentorship and learning. Mentors may be a sounding board and offer suggestions to help mentees overcome their challenges in scaling, promoting, fundraising, and generally establishing their business in the United States. Advantages to being a SGWIT Mentor include:

  • Making a meaningful impact on women looking to bring their business to the United States.
  • Joining a supportive community of passionate, devoted mentors and ambitious female entrepreneurs working to expand their business into the United States.
  • Strengthening your organization’s reach in key markets or extending reach to new global markets by connecting with the Foreign Commercial Service and contributing to worldwide in-market events.
  • Raising your organization’s profile among a global network of tech startups, economic development organizations, public sector officials, and others in the tech and startup ecosystem.
  • Accessing numerous networking opportunities to make connections with:
    • Tech Partners, such as VC firms, accelerators, incubators, and more
    • Ambitious and fast-growing startups
    • U.S. economic development organizations
    • Other potential partners
  • Plugging into SelectUSA’s diverse programming and receiving consideration for speaking opportunities with SelectUSA, such as at the flagship annual SelectUSA Investment Summit.
  • Receiving opportunities to present a workshop or an educational webinar that highlights your organization’s services or strengths for an audience of tech startup founders.

SGWIT Mentors make contacts, ignite ideas, and support mentees to achieve their goals.

If you or someone you know is interested in serving as a mentor, check out the information below!

Mentors: SGWIT mentors are U.S.-based successful entrepreneurs, corporate executives, venture capitalists, angel investors, and attorneys interested in supporting international female founders in their efforts to achieve their U.S. expansion goals. Mentors may be a sounding board and offer suggestions to help mentees overcome their challenges in scaling, promoting, fundraising, and generally establishing their business in the United States. While U.S. government employees and economic development organization officials may not serve as mentors, they may support the network via educational content contributions or events.

Note: All mentors must be vetted by SelectUSA before being confirmed.

The SelectUSA team looks forward to welcoming both mentors and mentees to the second year of this network and supporting the growth of female-run businesses worldwide.
