(Manchester, N.H., May 18, 2021) — York IE, a vertically integrated strategic growth and investment firm, announced today a partnership with MentorPass, a results-driven mentorship program, to offer MentorPass members low-cost access to York IE’s B2B SaaS growth expertise.
This partnership is unique because it intersects two strong market forces: Software as a Service (SaaS) and mentorship. The SaaS market continues to grow because it helps companies scale. As a result, more and more startups are being founded using this business model. However, because SaaS represents such a shift from traditional business models, many entrepreneurs would benefit from mentorship.
There is no denying the importance of mentorship on startup success. In fact, mentored startups grow 3.5 times faster and raise seven times more money, according to Forbes. York IE, which recently launched its own SaaS platform for market and competitive intelligence, Fuel, wants to help with both.
“At York IE we want to help entrepreneurs grow their companies,” said Kyle York, CEO, York IE. “We will do that anyway we can. MentorPass offers a frictionless opportunity for us to come in and listen to the challenges entrepreneurs are having and give them advice based on our years of experience building companies and working with hundreds of startups. We’re thrilled to be teaming up with MentorPass, which is really reinventing business mentorship.”
