Sapphire Fellows Program

A curated ecosystem of experts helping entrepeneurs

Building a company can be hard. With every success and burst of growth comes a new set of challenges that founder may not have experienced before, or event anticipated.

Sapphire has created the Sapphire Fellows program to help founders navigate these issues and accelerate their growth. Sapphire Fellows is a curated program that matches proven technology and business experts with portfolio companies looking for experience and a guiding hand as they grow.

In addition to deep domain expertise, Fellows can assist entrepreneurs with activities such as:

  • Fundraising
  • Recruiting
  • Participating in strategic meetings

Sapphire Fellows are matched to portfolio companies based on specific needs, expertise and time commitments.
