It’s been proven time and again that effective mentorship is one of the most critical factors in determining a start-up’s success. The best mentoring programs provide their founders with conflict-free, unbiased advice and guidance that drastically increases the probability of success.

But any old mentor won’t do. Curating a network of mentors with proven track-records for success, who are committed to long-term relationships with their mentees, and who aren’t afraid to address critical issues as they arise is a big job — but one that pays off in spades when the right people and processes are in place.

That’s why our Distance Learning Division is turning the spotlight on two best-in-class venture mentoring programs — the Venture Mentoring Service at MD Anderson Cancer Center (based on the widely heralded MIT VMS), and the Venture Mentoring Network at Northeastern University.

Join us for this strategy-filled, practical distance learning program: Supporting University Startups with a Robust and Effective Venture Mentor Network, scheduled for May 25th. For complete program and faculty details or to register, click here.
