Laval Entrepreneur Mentor Program
The Laval Entrepreneur Mentor Program is designed to give aspiring entrepreneurship students a chance to interact directly with leading entrepreneurs in the Central Valley. The program provides a forum for learning directly from the experiences of successful entrepreneurs, and includes visits to their businesses, venues for social gatherings, field trips, and site visits to local businesses.
How are students chosen?
Any student is eligible for the program. You need not have completed coursework in entrepreneurship to apply. However, the student will be required to demonstrate how they plan to build innovation and entrepreneurial thinking and behaviors into their chosen career path.
Enrollment in the program will be limited to a maximum of 20 students. Once enrolled, students will be matched one-on-one with the mentor whom best suits their area of interest.
Do I receive college credits for this program?
Each student completing the program will receive three (3) credits (listed as ENTR 190) at the end of two (2) completed semesters. Students can use the credits as either an elective or as a substitute for ENTR 155.
What else should I know about the Mentor Program?
Each student will have the opportunity to participate in leadership assessment training. Students will engage in projects that will assist their specific needs and interests.
