Mentorship Application Process

The COE-ACCEL program is calling all volunteer business professionals, industry leaders and corporate mentors. We want your experience, knowledge and networks to bridge the gaps as you assist aspiring, budding entrepreneurs and innovative, growing enterprises.

If you are an alumnus/alumna, you may be interested in giving back to your college. If you are an entrepreneur, business manager, executive or administrator, you may wish to engage in innovative and entrepreneurial programs and activities at Centennial College. Maybe you have a colleague or friend who would also be interested? We are looking for individuals willing to share their experiences with current and future entrepreneurs both in social and commercial sectors.

As a Mentor you will get to write tomorrow’s success story – guiding  entrepreneurs as they put their businesses in motion to reach the next level. Mentors should possess:

  • A strong professional background
  • Relevant business or technology experience
  • A network of professional contacts ready to connect
  • Familiarity with impact entrepreneurship, start-up and scale-up enterprises, operational setup, innovation, financing or related areas

We also need guest speakers – advice from the experts! Guest speakers present online or in person, as part of conferences and workshops. Presentations are also available as recorded content. Speakers’ topics include practical advice in the areas of sales, marketing, branding, communications, operations, finance, and business planning.
