Welcome to the Duree Center for Entrepreneurship's mentoring program where community and mentorship transform the entrepreneurial journey. Help us transform lives and communities.
How Mentors Support Entrepreneurs
Entrepreneurship is often a solitary endeavor and yet, it’s difficult to face the journey alone. Mentors help entrepreneurs with organization, mitigate their risk, and offer subject matter expertise. Mentors also possess empathy, trust, and patience with a unique ability to convert knowledge into questions, thus guiding entrepreneurs through a process of self-discovery. The Mentor must humble himself/herself to meet the entrepreneur wherever they are in their journey.
