About MicroMentor's Community Engagement Program
MicroMentor has worked with organizations such as Nike, IBM, Citigroup, and Western Union to engage their employees as volunteer business mentors to new entrepreneurs, and small business owners. This in turn provides employees with professional development training in effective mentoring practices, creating a win-win situation for both entrepreneurs and business mentors. We offer our Corporate Engagement partners tools and resources to be successful and empowered to make a difference. . In addition, MicroMentor offers sponsorship opportunities for initiatives to promote entrepreneurship, business mentoring, and business-focused volunteerism within targeted geographies, populations (e.g., Women or Youth), and sectors (e.g., Food and Farming or Social Enterprise).
