MentorMob moved to NYC a month ago to join Kaplan Techstars and accelerate our work helping people stop searching and start living.

And it turns out, being immersed in this kind of program is going to change our lives more than we thought.

Event after event, mentor after mentor, talented peer after talented peer—the possibilities, motivation, and energy are endless!

If the web can be used to make people more human, then I think that’s a great success.”

Of all the powerful examples shared, these were my top 5 favorites. At heart they’re good short stories, and I bet you’ll like them too.

#5 - BMW M5 | “Bullet”

#4 - Surprise! It’s David Beckham!

#3 - Dove | Real Beauty Sketches

#2 Dove | Camera Shy

#1 Meet Monty | The World’s First Driving Dog
