How Does it Work?

Groups of six to eight women meet for six, two-hour meetings with a volunteer mentor in their community. The purpose is to offer a supportive environment for entrepreneurs who share similar concerns and levels of expertise to get new ideas and feedback on their challenges with a solution-based approach.

The mentor will ensure that members work together – fostering a cohesive and comfortable group of women, who are there to listen, brainstorm and provide support for each other.

The group decides the focus of each discussion based on the interests and needs of its members (e.g. work/life balance, marketing, networking skills, cash flow management).

I was enormously pleased and impressed with my experience learning, networking, having mutual support and collaborative problem solving. I found it invaluable as a relatively new one-woman business.”Peer Mentoring Participant
