Doyenne Mentor Match
It can be difficult for entrepreneurs to connect with mentors who have the knowledge, skill, and/or time to become a valuable advisor. Doyenne’s Mentor Match expedites this process by matching ready, willing and able mentors with entrepreneurs in need.
Prior to the event, entrepreneurs and mentors apply to find a match. In addition to providing bios and background information, each indicates their specific areas of need or expertise (i.e., legal, marketing, finance, accounting) and available time. After reviewing the applications, the Doyenne team makes the appropriate professional matches and sends bios to each of the match-ups.
An entrepreneur can be matched with up to three prospective mentors.
It is possible that a mentor won’t be matched based on the needs of the entrepreneurs.
At the event, entrepreneurs meet and have 15-minute conversations with their matched mentors. The goal is for each to learn more about the other and determine if they’re a good fit to work together going forward.
In addition to these structured introductions, there is open networking for those looking for something a little a less formal. This is also a good time for entrepreneurs and mentors to connect with professionals beyond those they were paired with.
All attendees wear ribbons to identify if they’re an entrepreneur or a potential mentor and their field of expertise.
