Global Mentor Network

Transformational Leaders for Tomorrow

What is the Global Mentor Network?

Co-Founded by Silicon Valley Entrepreneur, Keith Krach, the Global Mentor Network is an exciting pay-it-forward enterprise with a noble mission to solve one of the world's great challenges: building the next generation of principled, transformational leaders.

Why GMN

Aspiring Leaders know that mentorship is the best way to learn leadership, but great mentors are hard to find. Experienced Leaders have a lot of lessons to share, but one-on-one mentoring is time consuming and has limited impact.

That’s why we founded the Global Mentor Network.

The Global Mentor Network is an online destination site that offers aspiring leaders inspiring, insightful leadership lessons from many of the world’s greatest leaders. The Global Mentor Network builds transformational leaders, teaching them to harness diversity of thought to solve complex problems, commit to values-based leadership, and unite and mobilize people to achieve noble causes.

What Does the Global Mentor Network Do?

For Leaders

GMN offers inspiring, insightful leadership lessons from many of the world’s greatest leaders. Video, audio and written content is easily browsable by topic or mentor to meet aspiring leaders’ interests and needs.

For Mentors

GMN offers an incredibly efficient way to pay-it-forward. Our mentors touch the lives of thousands of up-and-coming leaders—in perpetuity, through GMN.

For the World

GMN builds leaders who can help ensure that change benefits all; who harness diversity of thought to solve complex problems; who are committed to values-based leadership; and who can unite and mobilize people to achieve noble causes.

Our Mentors

Our mentors are a diverse, growing assembly of accomplished leaders in the public and private sectors, business, government, philanthropy, sports, entertainment and more. We are united in our commitment to developing the principled, transformational leaders our world urgently needs.
