MentorFest 2020: World’s 1st Virtual Speed mentoring Event | SOUALIGA NEWSDAY

SINT MAARTEN (GREAT BAY) – MicroMentor is the world’s largest digital platform for mentorship of entrepreneurs in the world. With more than 100 000 mentors and entrepreneurs, MicroMentor along with Bacardi has committed to supporting entrepreneurs in the Caribbean region. This was first to support islands hit hard by the hurricanes of 2017 and now has extended to supporting these same islands during the global pandemic.

In 2019, MicroMentor with Bacardi has hosted the Caribbean Innovation Challenge where 15 entrepreneurs on St. Maarten got cash prizes totaling USD $37 000. Before the pandemic in February 2020, MicroMentor worked with its local partner Produce Wealth Revolution (PWR) Agency and Motorworld to host PWR 2020@ Motorworld, the island’s first speed mentoring event. Since the pandemic, and with the support of its local partners in the region, MicroMentor has hosted several online mentoring events and webinars on the respective islands to support local entrepreneurs during these unpredictable times.

In keeping with health protocols and maintaining physical distancing while bringing entrepreneurs in the Caribbean together, MicroMentor will be hosting its first virtual speed mentoring event, MentorFest 2020. On August 27, 2020 from 10 am – 4 pm, entrepreneurs based on the Bahamas, St. Maarten, and USVI will be able to connect with fifteen (15) mentors from around the world with practical steps to overcome their pressing business challenges.

Registration for this is free and made possible by MicroMentor, Bacardi and its local consultants and partners on Bahamas (J.P. Michielsen ), St. Maarten (PWR Agency) and US Virgin Islands (Economic Department Authority). Registration is required to gain access to mentors who have specific expertise in a variety of topics such as social media, marketing, taxation, sales, and more.

After a completed registration, entrepreneurs will get a Zoom link and reminders leading up to the event. The event will kick-off with brief welcome and then entrepreneurs will be placed in ‘break-out rooms’ with the mentor that best suited to support them in addressing their challenges. After every round, entrepreneurs will have an opportunity to network with people from around the region.
