Our volunteers have diverse backgrounds and provide support across a variety of areas in business and entrepreneurship. We’ve created many resources to help structure your advising sessions and assist entrepreneurs in building their businesses.
Explore the community and message your first entrepreneur
Once you find an entrepreneur that you’re interested in working with, you can send them a message through our Skysthelimit.org messaging system. You can then set up an Intro Meeting, and if it feels like you’ll be able to help, you can commit to collaborate with them on a project, goal, or challenge.
Keep in touch — tell us how it’s going!
We want this to be a rewarding volunteer experience for you, and when you give us feedback on your matches, we can create the best experience for you. We welcome updates on what is working well and what could be better — any feedback is great feedback!
Stay engaged and match again!
Together, you and your entrepreneur will work to make progress on their business and achieve important business milestones. Some of our Volunteers engage in long-term mentor relationships, while others decide to meet a few times to work on a specific project or challenge. Regardless of which option you choose, you are welcome to match with new entrepreneurs looking for help! There is no limit to the number of matches you can have on Skysthelimit.org.
