Role of LaunchKNIGHTDALE Mentors

We expect our mentors to fill a very specific need in supporting the LaunchKNIGHTDALE program participants. Business professionals and community leaders who are willing to serve as volunteer mentors will be expected to:

  • Serve as role models while acknowledging, validating, and encouraging the business owners
  • Advocate for business owners and help them navigate through community resources
  • Provide candid constructive feedback to the business owner
  • Act as a sounding board to listen, advise, and encourage
  • Serve as accountability partners with their mentees

We believe business mentoring is integral to the success of LaunchKNIGHTDALE participants post-completion of the 10-week course. Business Mentoring is an extension of the program and is proven to help business owners sustain and grow their businesses.  Mentor meetings are held monthly for 3-6 months.
