FWE-Mentor-Program-2017-2018

 

WELCOME TO THE 2017/18 MENTORS + MENTEES

Dive deeper into your business and trust your vision enough to share it. The FWE Mentor Program encourages women entrepreneurs to push their businesses to the next level and supports their growth by pairing them with experienced business leaders for monthly 1:1 mentorship (one hour per month).

Applications are now closed for the Vancouver program, which kicks off in October 2017. Applications are still open for the Toronto program, launching early November 2017. Please click on the button below to join our program.

The Mentor Program is open to women entrepreneurs across Canada of all industries, sizes and stages. We can pair you with someone in the same city, or from another province, depending on your mentorship preferences and business needs.

 

How Does the Mentor Program Work?

 

The FWE Mentor Program is a mentee-driven program that strategically pairs mentees based on their stage of business, needs, and long-term business goals, with the experience and expertise of Mentors. Pairs meet once per month for one (1) hour.

A formal Launch Party and an interim event bring the group together, as part of the program. The FWE Team (604-682-8115) provides ongoing direct support to both Mentors and Mentees who have questions or concerns about their mentor relationship. Please contact Melodie Gingras at melodie@fwe.ca if you need additional information.

The Vancouver Launch Party is being held this year on Thursday, October 12, from 4:30 to 6:30 pm, at TELUS Garden, and the Toronto Launch Party is hosted on Tuesday, November 7 (location TBD). Both events are by invitation only.

 

Thank you to our Mentor Program Sponsors
