Support Local Businesses In Your Community

Mentors will work with entrepreneurs to help them troubleshoot, overcome challenges to reaching their goals, and build their network. Your staff members can volunteer their time in ways that work for them: they can meet in person and/or virtually (over the phone, or on Skype, Facetime, etc) with their advising match. 

Volunteer advisors donate 5 hours of their time each month, and in the last few years they’ve empowered hundreds of small businesses to create and maintain tens of thousands of jobs for working people in underserved communities.
