Mentor Application

How to Help


​We are soliciting mentor candidates from local business and community organizations.  After reviewing your application and conducting a telephone interview, mentor applicants may be matched with a mentee in the traditional one-on-on format or you may be selected to be a group mentor. This popular format joins mentees with mentors to share challenges and accountabilities.

Sponsor Event

Our class runs 8 weeks from 6-9pm on Tuesday & Thursday nights. Three of the sessions will be group mentoring and networking sessions.  If you’d like to provide food or cover the cost of buying a food for one of these networking and mentoring sessions, we would be grateful!


Donate to fund our efforts to build entrepreneurs right here in our city.  Thank you for your consideration!  Please reach out to us for details.

What is Mentoring?

​We expect our mentors to fill a very specific support need.  Business mentoring is different from management consulting or business coaching. It assumes that the mentee already possesses the basic technical skills to make their product or deliver their service. The mentor focuses on business perspective and guidance, personal development, and soft skills.

The mentee benefits from the knowledge and experience of the mentor by receiving:

  • Advice, counsel and encouragement
  • A confidential sounding board, thinking room, and support for working through crucial and often complex decisions.
  • Networking and  contacts
  • Political and cultural know-how
  • Ongoing personal support and encouragement

If this sounds like a good fit for you, please APPLY.
