Become a Mentee

TDCC Mentorship Program

Starting and managing a business is exciting, but it can present complex issues. Planning is essential. Many small business operators run into difficulties because they have not planned effectively for some of the details related to the market or the competition as well as matters related to finance and taxation. If you have an established business (6 months) and wish to further develop your business, it makes sense to consider the Business Mentorship Program. Thanks to our partners and volunteer Mentors, it’s a FREE service that could save you a lot of time, stress and money.
