GEMS seeks entrepreneurial college students for mentoring program

A mentoring program for college students in Greensboro who are interested in starting their own businesses is accepting applications for the 2014-15 academic year. The program, Growing Entrepreneurs by Mentoring Students (GEMS), is managed by the North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center (NCEC) at UNCG.

Through a competitive application process, up to 20 top entrepreneurial students will be selected this spring and matched one-on-one with experienced entrepreneurs who will serve as mentors. The program starts in the fall and runs through the 2014-2015 academic year. The application deadline is Friday, April 18, and applications may be sent to ncec@uncg.edu. More information can be found at http://ncec.uncg.edu.

In addition to one-on-one mentoring, the program will include dinners and other activities to encourage networking and information sharing among mentors and students. Thanks to generous support from the community, there is no cost for either students or mentors to participate in the program.
