• Mentorship for Entrepreneurs

  • GAACC is offering a mentorship program (modeled after Asian Corporate & Entrepreneur Leaders). We invite you to apply for both the mentee and mentor roles. We will follow up with a call/meeting to get to know you better before we match you.

    Having a mentor can be so beneficial: learn from their experiences not found in books, access their networks, gain assurances or build confidence, develop your emotional intelligence and more. This program is specifically for less seasoned Asian Pacific American (APA) entrepreneurs to help you with issues that you want to address.
    Mentee Application

    Being a mentor to a younger APA entrepreneur can allow you to pass on a legacy, gain leadership and coaching skills, and enrich your life and the well-being of the APA community here. Program duration is 9 months. Time commitment - the matched pairs should have 1 weekly conversation by email or phone, and meet once a month (don't have to talk by phone that week). Any GAACC hosted events will count as meetings for that month.
    Mentor Application


    • Through February - applications, interviews and matching
    • March - orientation and launch
    • July - midpoint assessment event
    • December - graduation celebration

    A successful mentoring relationship is grounded in trust. Any breach of confidentiality by any participant will be grounds for dismissal from the program. GAACC will hold your application and evaluations in confidence. However, your aggregate feedback will be used to fine tune our program.
