Mentorship Program

The efactory and Missouri Small Business Development Center at MSU Mentorship Program gives startup founders and small business owners access to experienced owners and business leaders. These experts understand the risks and rewards of starting a business. Mentors provide honest and practical feedback based on personal experience, not just business theory.

Mentors hold sessions on an ongoing basis throughout the year. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic mentorship sessions are being held virtually.
