Mentoring entrepreneurs is one way to make use of your expertise and support the economy of our region. It is exciting and can involve working alongside our Universities, Colleges and many other organizations supporting entrepreneurs and economic development.
We are looking for a variety of expertise in various industries, technologies and service organizations. A proven entrepreneurial track record is a plus. A mentor can be a member of our organization or serve as an advisor. We maintain a list of subject matter experts that we can call upon to best meet the needs of entrepreneurs we are supporting.
Our organization provides funding advice to entrepreneurs. We try to find the right approach for each client: self funding; funding through sales; friends and family; Local, State and Federal Grants; Corporate funding and Venture Capital.
Members meet on a monthly basis and as needed to support their clients. At our monthly meetings we review progress, plan upcoming events and generally invite one or more entrepreneurs to make a pitch of their startup company.
