Programs In Progress

Please note:

Once the entrepreneurs for each program have been selected, the Mentor Network Team will reach out to mentors who have registered their interest through our form. Mentors will receive a summary of the participants in the cohort and are encouraged to indicate any preferences, interests, and limitations. Generally, you can expect to hear from our team about two weeks before the start of any given program.
