ASBA Mentoring ProgramASBA's Business Mentoring Program

Matching you with successful business owners with skills and experience in your industry is a valuable asset of ASBA’s Mentoring Program. The program focuses on opportunities and obstacles, along with identifying objectives and expectations.Through this approach of matching committed business owners who want help (mentees) with experienced business owners who want to give help (mentors), the program has been very successful in solving the problems that challenge business owners in a variety of industries. Mentees learn new concepts to expand their horizons, learn from other business owners, and are strategically working toward well-defined objectives.Mentors stay with their mentees for a four month period. At the end of the four months, you re-assess and determine next steps.
