The Technology Spurring International Development. A Conversation about MicroMentor.
There's a popular social media platform out there helping transform lives and strengthen communities. But it's not Facebook and it's not Instagram - I'm talking about MicroMentor, the world's largest online business mentoring program, run by Portland-based non-profit Mercy Corps.
On this episode we chat with Mikaila Belk about the work her organization is doing to connect entrepreneurs and business mentors around the globe.
By facilitating genuine connections among small business owners, successful entrepreneurs, and hard-working hopefuls, MicroMentor helps people grow their businesses and improve the economic status of their communities, all through the power of mentorship.
Did you know mentored entrepreneurs create twice as many new jobs as those who go solo?
Check out MicroMentor's website to learn more about their work and scroll down to their blog (Mikaila's favorite) to have a look at a few recent success stories.
