Learning from mentors is an essential part of the student venture experience here at the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship. We know firsthand that being a great mentor for students isn’t always as easy as it seems. Having a breadth of life and startup experience is certainly a necessary foundation, but often as mentors, we need guidance on how to most effectively advise and shape the next generation of entrepreneurs. Join the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship, for our next Mentoring in Focus Series focused on How to Be an Effective Mentor for Student Ventures. Jason Harry, Breakthrough Lab (B-Lab) Director and the Hugh Pearson Professor of the Practice of Technology and Entrepreneurship in the School of Engineering, will lead a discussion on the important nuts and bolts of advising through our venture development process. Register here to attend the event.
Whether you are a first-time or a returning mentor, we hope you can join us to learn new approaches, refresh your skills, and share your own mentoring experiences. As preparation, we recommend that you take a look at our Mentoring Resource webpage and check out our first Mentoring in Focus Series event, Why Being Inclusive in Your Approach Isn’t So Obvious with Professor Banu Ozkazanc-Pan.
Save the date for our next Mentoring in Focus event scheduled for Thursday, June 24 at 12 pm ET.
