The mentor program makes better entrepreneurs. Applications for entrepreneurs & mentors for the fall 2019 cohort open October 16, 2019 - November 16, 2019. Entrepreneurs may apply to the program at any stage of development. Individuals are accepted into the program based on criteria established for each cohort by the Mentor Program Committee. Mentors must also apply to be a part of the program and are expected to take an interest in the success of the entrepreneur(s) they are matched with; and to get to know the Entrepreneur's needs, including personal situations. Entrepreneurs and Mentors are expected to meet with regular frequency – approximately 2-3 hours per month and for quarterly check-ins for the duration of the program.
