NEESC can assist newly formed businesses that have a need to supplement their experience and expertise in running a successful startup. Expert professionals and experienced entrepreneurs who are interested in giving back and have time to invest in budding companies are available as mentors. NEESC can match small businesses with mentors that will provide strategic advice, coaching, and mentoring to transform an entrepreneur’s weaknesses into strengths.

What we do:

  • Coordinate with the Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE) to identify appropriate mentors in the service area based on the needs of NEESC members;
  • Refer NEESC members to appropriate mentors;
  • Provide meeting space and teleconferencing (audio/video) services to facilitate the exchange of information; and
  • Develop networking events to link NEESC businesses with potential mentors.
