Give Back by Mentoring the World’s Best Student Entrepreneurs
How do I get started?
After completing an interest form, prospective mentors will be contacted with further instructions. Mentors will register on MicroMentor and create a profile describing their business experience and interests. Mentors will be matched with prospective mentees based on expertise, industry, and location. Prospective mentor matches for the GSEA finalists will be selected based on the competition finalist pool, and will receive customized training.
What will I be doing as a mentor?
Your mentoring will consist of face-to-face meetings as well as phone and email communication in a structured, year-long mentoring relationship. Mentors will also participate in a custom training session, and complete surveys to evaluate progress and program results. EO will provide mentors with meeting templates, best practices, strategy tools, and guidelines. Within these formal mentoring relationships, mentees are responsible to create growth objectives and milestones, while mentors provide insight, perspective and support within a safe, intimate environment of idea and experience exchange.
Am I qualified for this position?
Ideally, GSEA mentors will have founded or co-founded a business, or have C-Level experience with a company which has revenues over US$1 million per year. We are also recruiting skills-based mentors with experience in functional business areas who can help mentees with specific issues, including but not limited to: Accounting and Finance; Human Resources; Financial Resources; Strategy; Marketing; PR & Communications; Social Media; and Technology.
