The Mentor Capital Network exists to support impact entrepreneurs. But we don’t want to do so by taking you away from running your business. So our programs are light-touch, and we use as little of your time as we can to add as much value as possible.
Some of you might be looking for programs that add more value, even if they take more of your time. Below is a list of such programs that we particularly admire. All of these have had our alumni go through their programs so we have a good sense of where they added value.
- Agora Partnerships – they focus on central- and south- american companies.
- Echoing Green – they work with individuals all over the world.
- Fledge – they have both online and and in-person programs around the world.
- Global Social Benefit Institute – they have both online and and in-person programs. Their in-person programs are in Santa Clara, CA.
