Founded in 2008, EntreDot is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to meeting the needs of entrepreneurs who want to be in business for themselves. We provide mentorship to these entrepreneurs in all industries and at all levels of business maturity. We take pride in the hundreds of mentoring relationships we have had and gain great satisfaction in the mentoring work we do in helping entrepreneurs create, launch and operate their own businesses.
Through our local presence and our online outreach, we mentor entrepreneurs throughout the United States. Although we mainly help small business entrepreneurs, “main street businesses,” we whole-heartedly mentor technology and life science businesses as well as nonprofit organizations.
Our mentoring is impartial, and our approach is to advise and guide entrepreneurs so that they have a sense of accomplishment in making their own business decisions. In this way, they “own” their decisions. We do not do their work for them, but we do encourage them to do the right work. When help is needed from other business experts, we make referrals and active introductions to the entrepreneur from our extensive base of business contacts.
In addition to our guidance, we ask many questions that help the entrepreneurs determine if they have all the information that they need to make well-founded business decisions. Then, we simply hold them accountable for achieving their own business objectives, meeting their commitments, and following through on their own decisions.
