Become a Bloom Mentor!

Maybe you’ve become an expert in your domain of work, built up a pool of experience worth sharing, had great success in your own field, or had a mentor of your own who helped you. Regardless, mentoring is something you can do that makes a direct difference in someone else’s life and business.

Welcome to our mentor program, we’re glad you’re here!

Just as exciting, high-quality mentoring has benefits for both mentors and mentees. As you help mentor others, you also have a chance to enhance your leadership and communication skills, build networks, stay up-to-date on the latest innovations and trends in entrepreneurial ecosystems, and shape the people in your global community, all this while giving back and having fun.

The benefits you get from mentoring!

Enhancing skills in coaching, counseling, listening, speaking and modeling
Developing and practicing a more personal style of leadership
Obtaining a greater understanding of the barriers experienced in startups
Demonstrating expertise and sharing knowledge, and renewed enthusiasm for the areas you have expertise in
Increasing generational awareness
Directly impacting entrepreneurs, teams and small businesses during these challenging times
