Mentorscape

The Smith Family Business Initiative is pleased to announce the creation of the Cornell Family Business Mentorscape.  This is an outgrowth of our popular Sam Seltzer ’48 Mentors Forum and provides year-round access to our slate of mentors. The SFBI has partnered with StartupTree to create this mentors’ platform with the goal of connecting our Cornell students and recent alumni with the vast expertise within the SFBI network.

The StartupTree platform does several things:

  1. Organizes all of our mentors into one place.
  2. Streamlines the connection process; the SFBI moderates all mentorship requests.
  3. Allows the SFBI to track the quantity and quality of the engagements.

 

How it Works

  • Students interested in meeting with a mentor should sign up through StartupTree.
  • If you already have a StartupTree account, to meet with a mentor, visit his or her page below, follow the Schedule Here button, and go to the mentorship tab.
