Labs mentors are industry experts with a wealth of experience – from operations, legal to investing, business development to coding, creative to marketing. Mentors volunteer their time to help grow and support the participating Labs companies and the programme more generally.

At Labs we offer access to both internal and external mentors.

External Labs mentors are actively involved in the start-up community in the UK and abroad and have a personal passion for entrepreneurship.

Internal mentors are accomplished professionals championing innovation within BBC Worldwide. These mentors provide our start-ups with insight into BBC Worldwide and aim to help Labs companies navigate their way to securing a deal with BBC Worldwide.
