Mentoring: How It Works for Supporters

Step 1: Create Your Supporter Profile

Your Supporter Profile describes your industry and business expertise, as well as your knowledge of foreign languages, to potential mentees.

Here's an example:

Step 2: Offer Your Help to Individual Entrepreneurs

There are 2 ways through which you can connect with entrepreneurs to provide mentoring support:

  1. You can search through open mentor requests to see what type of advice and questions entrepreneurs are looking for:
    • Click on “view additional details and offer to help” when you find an entrepreneur who would be a good fit.
    • Describe your expertise and knowledge in a short message to the entrepreneur — the entrepreneur will have 20 days to respond to your offer.
  2. Entrepreneurs can contact you based on your industry and business expertise.
    • You will receive a message notification through ImagineNations Network.

Step 3: Connect with Your Mentee

Once an entrepreneur accepts your offer, you’ll receive a message notification.

Step 4: Make the Most out of the Mentoring Experience

  • Introduce yourself and ask questions to get to know your mentee
  • Address the specifics of the mentor request and mentor goals
  • Be patient and continue to ask questions to help your mentee with his/her business or career questions
  • Read our mentoring guide for additional guidelines and tips for a successful relationship
