Do You Need a Business Mentor?
The CAP Mentorship helps pair cooperatives with experienced small business leaders and industry experts to coach and troubleshoot issues around growing and pivoting your business. We provide mentors a $1,500 stipend to support the cooperatives through a 5 month period. The cooperative can choose the mentor they prefer to work with. Each selected mentor will nurture and guide one growing worker-owned business in reaching its goals.
Small businesses with a mentor succeed at twice the national average. Mentors can: Share their unique skills and knowledge with values-driven worker-owned businesses, Help growing worker-owned businesses overcome challenges and obstacles.
