Can I request a specific mentor?

Mentorship is an important component to our courses, and we want to make sure you have a productive and insightful experience with our programs.

Specific Mentor Requests

If you have specific mentor requests, we can also take this into consideration. Just forward your shortlist of 3-5 mentors to hello@trydesignlab.com and we'll do our best to match you with your requests (or another awesome mentor of similar caliber).

As much as we'd love to always be able to match you with your top choice, please keep in mind there are multiple factors that can affect our ability to match you with specific mentors:

  • Whether they mentor for the course you are interested in
  • If they have enough capacity 
  • If they are available for the cohort (i.e. if they are on holiday during a particular cohort)

General Mentor Requests

On the other hand, if you have a general idea of what you'd like in a mentor - like location, experience, etc. - just forward that information over to us at hello@trydesignlab.com so our mentor matching team can find the best match for you.

In any case, rest assured we will make sure to match you with a knowledgeable and committed mentor!
