Success Stories


Jill Salzman

Entrepreneur

Jill Salzman started Founding Moms as an informal get-together for entrepreneurs who are also moms could meet and network. Yet it became so popular she was soon struggling to keep up. Getting matched with mentor Jim Mills proved to be the catalyst she needed.

Jim's sales and human resources experience helped Jill find qualified hosts and expand to new cities, which led to rapid growth. "Our backgrounds are so different," says Jill, "but his energy is very complementary to mine. I'm so grateful to MicroMentor for connecting us; I never want to give him up."

Results: Founding Moms has grown to more than 4,600 members in over 30 cities.


Morgan Douziech

Entrepreneur

A skilled Emergency Medical Technician, Morgan Douziech has a passion for responding to crisis. Morgan's start-up, Specialized Emergency Training, grew out of a concern for the lack of properly trained first aiders in his community.

After making significant progress on his own, Morgan connected with market researcher Ricardo Bullock to find a way to achieve rapid growth. "Ricardo has given more generously of his time than I ever expected... Our growth was inevitable with him holding us accountable."

Results: Morgan doubled his customer base in the first year of working with Ricardo.
