Once they're confirmed, say hi to your team on our platform. Prepare helpful resources, like your pitch deck, and tools required for the project, like social media accounts. During the first video check-in, you can share more about your business, set clear project goals, and work out the best time to next meet.
Make yourself available for a weekly 1-hour video check-in with your team, to track progress on project goals, share industry insight, and provide general feedback. Use chat to stay in touch with your team during the week. And if you're new to the project subject matter, like content marketing, data analytics, etc., we can provide additional resources.

“As the co-owner of a start-up, talent shortage has been one of the key issues that we have been facing. QLC.io has given us the opportunity to work with talents from all around the world who love what we are doing and at the same time, giving the right guidance to help them in finding their passion. The professional growth I’ve experienced with QLC.io has been amazing and I absolutely enjoyed mentoring with QLC.”

QLC projects are free for our startups. We are designed to be an experiential and educational program specific to the goals of startups and other digital-first companies.
Most mentors spend between 2-3 hours per week depending on the complexity of the project. This time can be split across video calls, chat, work review and feedback. The minimum weekly commitment is a 1-hour video check-in.
This is the perfect time to get started. Our platform is designed 100% for a digital workforce by supporting you with video and chat communication and document collaboration tools.
Most mentors list a project with a start date 2-3 weeks away. This gives them enough time to pick the right project with QLC and be matched with a team.
You can list multiple projects. If you're a first-time mentor, we recommend starting with one. We welcome you to list another project after completing the first. If you want to run multiple projects at once, we encourage you to invite one of your co-workers to mentor the project. Once you've set up your business profile, you can invite them to join your business.
Candidate background and experience are of varying levels. You could be matched with an undergraduate engineering student or a management consultant with 10 years work experience. Our application and matching assessment is based on evidence of passion for your project outcomes. They all come to QLC to learn with a startup, and are provided the training curriculum to execute for your project.
