The Faculty of Engineering Business Mentoring Program connects students enrolled in the Faculty of Engineering who are working on technological ideas with business potential to Mentors with entrepreneurial background who are themselves McGill Engineering Alumni.
The Program provides students with a connection to the business world to gain insight into their entrepreneurial project, to develop their entrepreneurial skills and networking abilities and develop pertinent contacts.
The Mentors possess significant experience in their fields and have successfully applied their skills in achieving their entrepreneurial goals. Students wishing to become Mentees can greatly benefit from this one-on-one interaction with a Mentor, primarily since the Mentor-Mentee match will be one that best suits the interests and needs of the student/student team.
