How does it work?

A representative from the Mawji Centre will assist you through the application process before pairing you with a mentor at our mentorship pitch event. Mentorship relationships typically last for 10-12 months, over which time you and your mentor will meet in person for 1 to 2 hours per month to work on setting and realizing personalized, measurable and attainable goals.

From there, you will drive the relationship with help from a member of the Mawji Centre team, who will check in to ensure healthy progress. After a year, the mentorship relationship will end with a celebration of achievements. To pay it forward, mentees are encouraged to volunteer for our centre programs.

  • Increase your self-confidence
  • Take control of your entrepreneurial future
  • Learn how to receive and build on feedback in important areas like communications, change management and leadership

The Mawji Centre Mentorship Program accepts new mentees every fall semester. If you are a student who has started a business, send us an email with your name, program and purpose of your business.
