Our Approach

One process, many successes.

Our Interactive Resource Map (IRMa) ensures that all support we provide is direct and sufficient. First, entrepreneurs provide intake/data through IRMa. Next, they are matched with a mentor to review their unique resource plan(map) and set goals. Then the mentor/mentee implements the map by connecting with service organizations and resources that may include completing applications for grants, loans, training programs, etc. Via IRMa, the mentor continues to guide and support the mentee through the steps of his individual plan.  Meeting and follow up appointments are scheduled and milestones are tracked until success is achieved.
1
Entrepreneurs apply for mentorship or are referred to our program by partner organizations, and are reviewed by our Executive Committee.
2
Our entrepreneurs are matched with a mentor that helps them use IRMa (Interactive Resource Map) to get a tailored list of resources based on their needs.
3
Mentors work with entrepreneurs to direct them to community resources based on their custom resource plan. Training programs, loans, grants, investments, etc.
4
We work directly with the entrepreneurs, mentors, and resource providers to assess gaps in services and find opportunities to assist entrepreneurs better.
