What is Morning Mentoring℠?
Morning Mentoring℠ is an entrepreneurial coaching program that matches startups and young companies with experienced entrepreneurs (Queen City Angels) and other successful business professionals in the fields of finance, operations, marketing, etc. The program’s goal is to grow the mentee’s business by removing barriers and creating solutions in a confidential and learning environment.
Why Get Involved?
Morning Mentoring℠ is an excellent opportunity to present, network, and receive expert feedback from successful business mentors. This long-running and proven program has helped hundreds of new companies grow and expand. Morning Mentoring is a collaborative effort between HCDC and Queen City Angels. You can either get involved as a mentor or a mentee – we are looking for both.
How does it work?
Four mentee companies begin the morning session by introducing their business in a five minute presentation to a panel of eight seasoned advisers. After the presentations, the mentees split up and sit down one-on-one with a two-member mentor team for a 45 minute mentoring session. When the time is up, the mentees sit down with a new mentor team for an additional 45 minute session.
Who can participate?
Morning Mentoring℠ encourages startups and young companies with a technology focus in Southwest Ohio to apply. Potential mentees must own their business, have a strong desire to grow and be able to discuss challenges that their business faces. Four mentee companies are selected monthly by the HCDC’s Business Center and Queen City Angels.
