Mentoring With a Difference

Our mentors are invited to participate based on their professional experience as well as their desire to assist Maryland technology and life sciences companies.

Mentors on average give 8-12 hours per month depending on the number of companies they work with. Many mentors help more than one company at a time.

Mentor Qualifications include:

  • Must be free of conflict with the entrepreneur/company
  • Remain financially independent of the venture they are mentoring
  • Have experience in growing an enterprise and raising capital
  • Provide their time and expertise on a completely voluntary basis
  • Sign a Non-Disclosure and an Ethics Agreement
