White House Champions of Change - Entrepreneurial Mentors
Monday, February 6, 2012
We know firsthand how important
mentors and counselors can be in helping an entrepreneur succeed in
business. Whether that is honest advice from having walked down a similar
entrepreneurial path or unbiased feedback on a tough business decision, mentors
are important allies for entrepreneurs to have on their side.
A strong mentor can help you
identify the right sources of capital. Or a trusted counselor could give
you ongoing support over weeks or months of feedback on your business
plan. Entrepreneurial mentoring can take many shapes and sizes.
We want to help celebrate some of
these local heroes who are helping to create thriving businesses across the
country. From our SBA resource partner network to our high-growth
accelerators affiliated with the Startup
we need your help identifying the best mentors across the spectrum.
Submit a nomination for someone who
has helped you by providing that critical advice that helped you grow your
business. We’re celebrating these entrepreneurial mentors with the White
House’s Champions of Change and need your nominations before
