CareerSource Capital Region Looking for Mentors

Are you interested in becoming a mentor? We are trending well with participant registration for the introductory session, but we are in need of mentors. So far, we have two confirmed, two on the fence, and three interested in co-mentorships.

Co-mentorship is new for the cohort four. The co-mentorship program provides the opportunity for two mentors to share the mentoring responsibility of one team. The mentor can select his co-mentor or allow us to provide a match for them. With the co-mentorship program, our goal is to attract mentors who may not be able to commit full time.

We will still have single mentor teams!

Required qualifications for mentors include:

  • Willingness and ability to commit time and energy throughout the entire 10-week training program
  • Willingness and ability to serve in a mentor role for individuals with little/no prior experience in technology-product development
  • Experience in developing business plans, ideally, for innovative companies in physical sciences, health, medicine, biotechnology, IT/IS, engineering, or other technical area
  • Certain professional backgrounds and industries can be substituted, please contact Kara Palmer for more information (850) 508-6123
