Coaching & Mentorship

A 2018 Gallup Alumni Survey found that “college graduates are almost two times more likely to be engaged at work if they had a mentor who encouraged them to pursue their goals and dreams.” – Best Colleges

Studies have found that effective mentoring helped a variety of learners see themselves as entrepreneurs, enhancing their capabilities to succeed professionally and further their new business ideas.
33% of founders who were mentored by successful entrepreneurs go on to become “top performers,” compared with just 10% of all others.

  • Develop emerging leaders and champion the success of underrepresented entrepreneurs.
  • Advance diversity, inclusion, and belonging in entrepreneurial ecosystems.
  • Ensure young leaders and entrepreneurs build social capital and supportive networks.
