What does a Mentor do?

The mentors at the Centre for Entrepreneurship provide support and advice to help entrepreneurs move forward and stay on track for success with their journey into entrepreneurship.  

  • Mentors help mentees understand various approaches to challenges that arise during the start-up phase and beyond.
  • Mentors guide their mentee’s growth and development by asking the right questions to propel them forward.
  • Mentors use personal stories and lessons from past experiences to advise, direct and provide perspective to the mentee.
  • Mentors support the entrepreneur as he/she develops the business.
