PeerSpark™

PeerSpark™ is a mentorship program that unites successful women entrepreneurs in their efforts to build confidence, improve their business acumen and accelerate business success.

Participants develop their skills in an interactive setting, share experiences, build lasting relationships, and learn from experts. The PeerSpark™ community works collectively to help each participant overcome critical business challenges.

 

Peer Mentoring

Peer mentorship is a way for entrepreneurs to discuss their goals and challenges and to learn from each other. Unlike a traditional relationship between an experienced mentor and a junior mentee, peer mentorship takes place between people who have similar levels of expertise and similar concerns.

PeerSpark™ includes structured peer mentoring that provides you with regular supportive contact with others who care about you and your success. Discussing plans and tough decisions with the group gives you a fresh perspective and helps identify potential flaws in your strategy early on. The group setting also creates and strengthens networks and partnerships within the community.

 

Meeting Structure

Each monthly meeting will feature two components:

  1. Education – an expert will guide the group through the topic at hand and help you evaluate the information in relation to your own business;
  2. Peer mentorship – you will have the opportunity to share experiences and build relationships.

Each meeting is an opportunity to step away for an afternoon and work on the business instead of in the business. You will set a commitment after the meeting to work on an aspect of your business over the next month.
