Specialists are mentors that are highly knowledgeable in a particular field and have the ability to teach and consult from their experiences. Specialist mentors are on-call for meetings with entrepreneurs and alumnae. Use your experience to guide an entrepreneur through an issue. The time commitment is as needed.
Specialist Mentors help entrepreneurs and mentor teams with specific issues and questions. They are also called upon for to teach classes during our Accelerator periods. Like our Accelerator mentors, they must be able to relate to their own personal and business experience to different industries and sectors. Specialist mentors can include, but are not limited to, a background in non-profit fundraising, accounting, presentation coaching, marketing strategy, website design, customer discovery techniques, Excel help, legal, or business formation. Specialists work with all the entrepreneurs whether they are currently in the Accelerator program or are alumni.
