Mentoring With a Difference
We here at the Maryland Tech Council Venture Mentoring Services (MTC VMS) have had quite a busy first quarter, with two mentor trainings in Baltimore, and a number of Mentee Company interviews.
We are enjoying meeting so many new faces, and having the chance to catch up with numerous mentors and mentees.
MTC VMS is a program based on the well-established and highly successful MIT Venture Mentor Services Program. MTC VMS provides free mentoring services in a unique team approach to selected young company Executive Leaders.
Entrepreneurs and their mentee companies are accepted into the program without a termination point. As the companies evolve, the teams evolve to address the pragmatic growth issues facing the companies. Success is not measured by graduation, but rather in terms of growth for the companies and the community. The mentee companies must be connected in some way to Maryland and must have a technology or life science related product or service with more than a proof of concept and at least one FTE.
