Mentoring for 2012

2011 was the first full year of the Gangplank mentoring program – hosting more than 72 appointments a month at the height of the program. For 2012, we took your feedback into account and have made improvements to our mentoring program.

All mentors will now follow a regular schedule each month (i.e. the First Tuesday from 1:00-4:00pm). We’ve also staggered mentors, ensuring each area of speciality is represented at least once a week. No more month long waits to see a Design or Legal mentor.

We’ve made changes to our areas of speciality as well. Sales & Marketing has been separated from Design, and we’ve added a Creative Industry speciality – focusing on the writing and music industries.

As always, our mentoring program is open to anyone looking for advice – students, retired individuals looking to start something new, startups AND growth businesses, nonprofits, etc. Our mentors are some of the most well-connected business leaders in the community and they’ll point you in the right direction.
