On Tuesday, February 22, at 11am at the Glass City Metro Park- Glass Pavilion, Downtown Toledo, Women of Toledo (WOT), the Northwest Ohio Hispanic (NOHCC), and the Toledo African American Chamber of Commerce (TACC), with support from JumpStart, are excited to launch the Northwest Ohio Business Mentoring Program and kickoff our year 2022 program.
In 2021, Women of Toledo (WOT), the Northwest Ohio Hispanic (NOHCC), and the Toledo African American Chamber of Commerce (TACC), with support from JumpStart, established the Northwest Ohio Business Mentoring Program through the Toledo Business Growth Collaborative (BGC).
As a result, we successfully recruited more than 25 mentors to serve roughly 22 diverse business owners in our region. As we enter year three of the pandemic, and our new normal continues to take shape, the only strong certainty is the power to continue collaborating at serving our business community.
Emily Roach, Community Relations Specialist at Kingston Sylvania, will be among the featured mentors.
We understand it is important to continue at creating an environment where businesses of our communities can begin to experience the generational success that leads to generational wealth building opportunities for the entrepreneur, their families, and the communities that they are from. Most importantly, our mentorship program is where business owners – the mentees can ask questions, get advice and elevate their economic empowerment.
We highly recommended interested individual to RSVP to reserve their seat and complimentary lunch. RSVP link here.
The Northwest Ohio Business Mentoring program was established under the Toledo Business Growth Collaborative Initiative. Convened by JumpStart, this collaborative network consists of existing small business assistance organizations in the Greater Toledo Community. Working together, these organizations are dedicated to finding and filling gaps in the service continuum and connecting their clients to the resources they need, wherever those resources are found. The Northwest Ohio Business Mentoring Program matches entrepreneurs with experienced mentors, who donate their valuable time because they believe supporting the next generation of great business leaders is the key to a vibrant economy.
