Gillings Entrepreneurs of Color Mentorship Program

The Gillings School will offer its mentorship program to pair budding Gillings student entrepreneurs of color with Gillings entrepreneurs of color for the Spring 2023 semester. Mentors and mentees will meet at least once per month (January-April) to discuss their entrepreneurial goals and broaden their networks. 100% of past participants would recommend the opportunity to future Gillings students. All students welcome. Registration for Spring 2023 is taking place now.
