ENTREPRENEURS WANTED!

 

Recruitment now open for NBCC OASIS mentorship program

 

NBCC’s OASIS program is accepting applications for its fall session in Moncton. Different from other mentorship programs in both delivery and scope, OASIS is an innovative program where entrepreneurs can find a home. The program matches small business owners with experienced mentors all through a unique, structured, and multi-leveled mentorship process.

OASIS is a community mentorship program offered to small business owners allowing them to work ‘on’ their business while working ‘in’ their business. There are professional development sessions that run throughout the 12 weeks, but the mentorship meetings with assigned mentors are coordinated by participants around their schedules.

The only cost to the small business owner is their investment of time. You will meet with your mentor and attend professional development sessions totaling 10-12 hours over 12 weeks.

The program’s success is based on tactical mentorship activities, professional development and community networking opportunities. And it is making a difference to small business owners in the program.

OASIS also boasts a 97% satisfaction rate amongst our participants. And now we’re excited to watch this program grow in a new area. We are recruiting for both OASIS mentees and mentors. OASIS is open to small business owners currently in need of support and guidance to reach their business goals. We are also seeking mentors who want to support these owners.

 97% say the OASIS program met their expectations
 94% were satisfied with their mentorship match
 97% would recommend the program to other entrepreneurs
 96% said they believe their leadership as a business owner has increased
 57% has seen a positive increase in revenue
 56% have experiences growth in their social media exposure
 45% have seen their client base rise

Further information about the program, as well as applications, can be found online. Check us out online at www.nbcc.ca/entrepreneurship or call our program coordinator at 506-778-6746. Applications are open until August 21.

Program seats available in Moncton for Fall session (September-December 2018). Apply today! Also recruiting for MENTORS in the Moncton area.

Atlantic Region Startup Award Winners 2018

Startup Greater Moncton congratulates all the award winners with their achievements. A job well done!

And to all entrepreneurs out there, we would like to echo Lisa Williams’ words, who during the event said: “Entrepreneurship to me, means dream big, start small, but just start!”. 

So, if you haven’t started yet, just start; no matter how small. A lot of small steps still make a big step forward. And if you have already started, keep going!
