Core City: Cleveland Encore Mentoring Program
JumpStart’s Encore Mentoring Program is a highly sought-after, no-cost advisory resource for entrepreneurs who are residents or have business interest in Cleveland and are looking to take their businesses to the next level. Through formal mentoring relationships, the program offers a select group of business clients the opportunity to gain rare access to key support resources, a vastly expanded network of contacts and the region’s top entrepreneurs, executives and experts.
With the creation of a formal advisory program, we have built a network of remarkable volunteers inspired by their desire and passion and the shared idea that through effective mentoring, we can impact Cleveland’s communities and unlock the full potential of our region’s most promising entrepreneurs – which in turn will lead to the accelerated transformation of our entire community.
If you’re interested in participating as an entrepreneur (mentee) or a mentor in the program, contact Lamont Mackley at Lamont.Mackley@jumpstartinc.org.
