Mentor Connect

For startups, the first year is unarguably the most critical time in the life of the company. Timely access to key resources, advice, and knowledge is essential for entrepreneurs to succeed. As a region that supports entrepreneurship as part of our economic success,  it’s up to us as a community to make sure our startups have everything they need to achieve their success.

Startup Spokane is excited to be facilitating mentorship opportunities through our Mentor Connect program. Through the program, which is free of charge to entrepreneurs, we connect startup companies throughout the Inland Northwest to industry experts and experienced entrepreneurs who want to share their knowledge. These one-on-one relationships are tailored to meet the needs of both parties.
