Mentorship

EHCC Entrepreneur Mentorship Program

The Mentorship Program is designed to assist entrepreneurs who are looking for advice and counsel on overcoming business problems, evaluating opportunities, and making significant operational or growth decisions.

It operates as a committee of the East Hants and District Chamber of Commerce. The committee is made up experienced business people who own or have operated a business, or work in other organizations in the area. These mentors have proven business skills and abilities and are willing to counsel and advise the entrepreneurs.

The committee holds monthly meetings with three to five mentors in attendance and entrepreneurs are invited to the meeting to discuss their specific need(s). It is important that, during these discussions, it is made clear during these discussions the role of the committee is solely to provide advice and that the confidentiality of the information exchanged from both sides is protected by the privacy agreement.

The Mentorship Committee then matches the mentors and mentees based on the needs of the mentee and the experience of the mentor. The program is apprentice-driven- it is structured around the development needs of the mentee. However, we encourage mentors to be very specific in their applications about their wishes, including the level of experience their ideal mentee should have and what specific areas of expertise they wish to share.
If both parties are in agreement, then a mentor is arranged for the entrepreneur.

Pairs are expected to meet regularly and it is important for the mentee to ensure that meetings are scheduled at the convenience of the mentor and that agendas are prepared and circulated beforehand. Once the work with the entrepreneur is completed, the mentor prepares a brief report which will be reviewed by the committee.

We currently have mentors from Scotia Bank, RBC, Futureworx, Kings Hants CBDC, Sipeknekatik band council, and the Municipality of East Hants.

We are always looking for new mentors who have knowledge and experience and who would like to give back to their profession and local business community.
