Peer mentoring

This is an industry-specific peer-mentoring group developed in partnership with the CEO Roundtable to support growth-focused food startup leaders. It is designed to provide support and connectivity to the individuals who not only are growing their own companies but also act as mentors in the ecosystem. As they work together to scale faster they will, in turn, pay it forward. This is an invitation-only group that meets monthly.

Corporate mentorship program

Entrepreneurs have questions, creativity and passion and large corporations have an interest in entrepreneurship as well as technical expertise and answers. Grow North's corporate mentorship program matches technical experts with entrepreneurs needing specific advice and council.
