The Dayton region’s entrepreneurs are building the companies that will drive tomorrow’s economy and bring vibrancy to our communities. The Launch Dayton Mentor Network supports these pioneers and business owners by connecting them to business mentors who have been there, done that, and can provide one-on-one support to help their peers avoid costly mistakes while they pursue business growth goals.
"Being part of a mentor network can definitely accelerate you because instead of just your knowledge, you’re using someone else’s knowledge as well. If I can teach somebody how I made mistakes and they don’t have to go through that, great. I love to build things, I love helping people build things, if I can be a part of that in any way, I’m in.”
Mentors can help you dream bigger. They share lessons learned from costly mistakes so you don’t have to make the same ones on your own business growth journey. Mentors introduce you to expanded networks; offer outside perspectives; and help hold you accountable to keep you on track. Get one-on-one support today to grow and scale your business.
The Launch Dayton Mentor Network is for business owners committed to improving as a business owner/operator. You should be willing to put in the work that comes from your mentoring sessions. You should also be coachable and open to feedback.
You’ve been there, done that, and you’re looking for a way to pay it forward and give back. We’ll pair you with a rising entrepreneur who can benefit from your wealth of knowledge and experience. Directly impact your community by helping these business owners grow so they can build wealth and employ their neighbors.
The Launch Dayton Mentor Network is a perfect opportunity for altruistic individuals who are passionate about mentoring early-stage and existing entrepreneurs on their business growth journey. You should be willing to volunteer your time and expertise. You will advise and guide, accelerate mentee business growth, and provide an ongoing educational relationship.
The Launch Dayton Mentor Network is made possible through Ohio Third Frontier funding to Entrepreneurs’ Center. The program is managed by Launch Dayton partner Parallax Advanced Research. The Launch Dayton Mentor Network selection committee comprises individuals from Parallax, Entrepreneurs’ Center, Downtown Dayton Partnership and the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce.
