What is the role of mentors in the JVCP?

Mentors will play a critical role in JVCP.  Mentors by nature are able to solve venture problems, and take action consistent with mentorship agreement requirements. They are inspirational to others around, empathetic, and good listeners. Mentors are very well organized, stick to plans, and meet deadlines. They have no problem taking the initiative and making important business decisions. They are comfortable with working independently, but also like to take on the mentoring role. Mentors make invaluable contributions to new ventures by helping with capital, contacts, technology, as well as providing knowledge based advice specific to new ventures.
