Introducing a new platform for strategic growth

York IE Partners with MentorPass to Bring B2B SaaS Expertise to More Entrepreneurs

(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.”

The York IE team specializes in helping entrepreneurs and startups in three main focus areas:

  • Product and Market
  • Business Growth and Go-to-Market
  • Marketing and Communications

To access the partnership, an entrepreneur simply needs to apply to join MentorPass, which is looking for goal-oriented, ambitious entrepreneurs, and then use his or her credits to book an advisory call with the York IE team.

“This partnership allows us to offer our B2B SaaS clients preferred access to done-for-you services to help them scale,”  said Kenny Hanson, founder and CEO, MentorPass. “Partner selection is a critical decision for startups. Kyle and team led a nine-figure exit to Oracle, which gives them experience and credibility that few have. We feel really good recommending our clients to work with York IE, knowing they’ll be with an exceptionally smart team with great leadership and values.”
