Community Innovation Lab maintains a roster of experienced entrepreneurs and business experts because we know that advisors, mentors, and coaches are vitally important to entrepreneurs.
Supporting a startup or high-growth entrepreneur is a rewarding and enriching experience. Advisors are subject matter experts who provide short-term support to help move a business forward. Mentoring supports all aspects of an entrepreneur's growth and is a one-year commitment, however, as little as one hour per week can make a huge difference. Coaches present specific topics and work closely with entrepreneurs on methodologies and the application to their business. Meetings may take place at Co-iLab Hub or any mutually convenient place, via telephone, and online.
Check out our current opportunities:
