Mentorship Program

A mentorship program designed for you

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.

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.
