Mentorship sessions for the rest of 2020 are currently full. We look forward to adding new times for early 2021 soon. In the meantime, schedule a meeting with a member of the Missouri Small Business Development Center (SBDC) team to talk to someone about starting or growing an existing business.

The efactory's mentorship program is a joint program with the Missouri Small Business Development Center at Missouri State University. By signing up to meet with a mentor you will also become a client of the Small Business Development Center.
