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 America Partnership, 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 February 8th.
