The CYBF Mentor Advisory Panel

Futurpreneur | November 8, 2011

The Canadian Youth Business Foundation is making it easier than ever for young entrepreneurs and their mentors to access the information and expertise they need to build successful businesses. In response to growing demand for specialized business advice, CYBF introduces the Mentor Advisory Panel, a group of experienced business owners, mentors and managers with specialized business skills.

What is it?

Under the umbrella of Entrepeer Hub (CYBF’s private LinkedIn group), specialized LinkedIn subgroups are now available where entrepreneurs and mentors in the CYBF community can ask the members of the Mentor Advisory Panel business-related questions and view or participate in topic-specific discussions.

The subgroups are as follows:

  • Accounting & Finance
  • Business Expansion
  • Business Development & Sales
  • IT & Technology
  • Marking & Communication
  • Operations Excellence
  • People Management & Development

Who’s involved?

Young entrepreneurs and mentors from the CYBF network are invited to ask questions and participate in discussions. Responses to questions posted on the LinkedIn subgroups will be provided by members of the CYBF Mentor Advisory Panel and by business experts from Accenture.

Do you have specific expertise to share with the CYBF community? Apply to join the Mentor Advisory Panel and become an expert that answers questions from others. Contact us at mentoring@cybf.ca.
