Engage your local business community
MicroMentor is also a great way to engage your own partners in the business community. Corporate employee volunteer and pro-bono programs love us because we provide a flexible, skills-based opportunity to make a big impact. Three out of four mentors tell us they find their connections very valuable, and the mentors that join through your stakeholders in the business community will discover a great and easy way to make a difference.
"An awful lot of people have helped me in my career, so I decided to give back what I have learned. The MicroMentor program is a good way to help out startup CEOs, share with them my experience, and give them some guidance so that they can build their own dreams."
Former CEO at ECI (the company that started and operated Match.com)
"Micromentor is a great organization. Among others, I’ve had the good fortune of working with a gentleman in Rhode Island looking to open a line of exciting modern furniture, and a young lady in Nigeria that has a value proposition for livestock feed sources that can help the whole of Africa. Few things get my creative juices flowing more than to help a young business person."
Former VP of Brand and Product Marketing at UPS
"This is a wonderful way to give back and make an impact in the community. It was so rewarding for me to be able to share my professional skills in my work here at HP and help grow a young nonprofit."
