Different Types of Mentoring

This is a volunteer opportunity where you can choose your own level of involvement.  Your commitment can be as LITTLE as simply getting an email from reSET when an entrepreneur encounters a challenge that aligns with your expertise; or as BIG as potentially hosting office hours at reSET a few times a month where entrepreneurs schedule blocks of time to meet with you.

Engage with startups occasionally as opportunities that align with your availability, interest, and expertise arise.

Help startups progress through milestones during the reSET Impact Accelerator and other reSET program offerings by developing relationships with entrepreneurs and connecting them to resources.

If we see the demand for an ongoing commitment and you have the time and interest, we can schedule regular office hours to further develop your relationships with entrepreneurs, make influential introductions and connections to resources for startups, and become an official reSET ambassador.
