EforAll looking for Mentors.
For the past ten years, EforAll has been on a mission to help under-represented individuals get the training and support they need to start and grow their own business. Through our free, one-year, Business Accelerator programs featuring hands-on business training and dedicated mentors, we have been able to help well over 700 businesses launch; 72% of which were women-owned and 70% BIPOC owned. In 2020, these businesses generated over $43M in revenue and provided 1,329 local jobs.
EforAll is a nonprofit organization and they work with entrepreneurs at any stage of their business journey from ideation to formation/launch to existing business support. They support all kinds of businesses and nonprofits, from “Main Street” brick & mortar type of businesses to services and tech ideas. EforAll gives the knowledge and skills to help entrepreneurs move their business forward. Their programs are 100% free of charge for entrepreneurs.
Currently, EforAll is looking for mentors for the Business Accelerator program which is offered twice a year in each of the EforAll communities. Their Mentors come from a variety of backgrounds, and use their business and leadership experience to guide new entrepreneurs through the process of turning their idea into a growing business. Mentors work in teams of three, and are matched with an entrepreneur based on schedule availability and desire to work together. The team meets as a group to help reaffirm topics and themes raised during classes, while also strategizing with the entrepreneur on how to reach their specific goals during the program. This is a high-touch year long commitment. Mentor teams have 90-minute virtual meetings for 3 months, and then meet once a month for the following 9 months. Please take a look at this 3 minute video on the importance and impact of mentoring with EforAll.
