Our Speed Mentoring Events bring togetherUtah’s most dynamic and innovative leaders from the business and nonprofit sectors for 90 fast paced minutes of ‘speed mentoring’.
In 2001 our event focued on sustainability, and nonprofits shared their ideas for social enterprise. In turn they were able to learn more about everything from finance to marketing strategies to web development.
- “I loved that I was able to speak with entrepreneurs from very diverse backgrounds. It was like going to eight different consulting companies. There was a perfect mix of expertise and I was able to get new ideas and equally rewarding to take ideas from businesses that most non-profits would never think about.”
- “I deeply enjoyed just the fantastic stream of ideas from the mentors. Their continuous stream of creativity is astounding. I also felt very inspired by their desire to help the nonprofits become better and stronger. It was very invigorating and I feel like I have new ideas that will better that.”
- “It was interesting to hear the trends emerge as I talked to different organizations”
- “Great exercise. The time flew!”
- “It was a great event and I enjoyed it, feel I gave some help, and made a couple good connections myself.”
- (and our favorite) “The Community Foundation of Utah is an organization emerging as a foremost thought leader in the nonprofit space both in Utah and nationally.”
We are very grateful for the continued support of our enlightened entrepreneurs and the sponsors who made this event possible.
Thanks to our amazing mentors, and a shout out to the entrepreneurs who three years ago came up with this idea – and are mentoring with us this morning: Brent Thomson from Jive, Barrett Hicken from Web Bank, Rob Brunt from Blue Line Services, Andrew Rail from Launch Leads and Dan Stewart from Sun Tool and Molding.
