Entrepreneurial mentorship to go further, sooner

Eight local mentoring cells, one in each RCM, provide mentorship to entrepreneurs in the Bas-Saint-Laurent. More than 50 mentors help entrepreneurs from the region to develop their soft skills by sharing their experiences. The relationship with the mentor does not have a fixed duration but evolves according to the needs of the entrepreneur.

Jean Pouliot, head mentor for the Rimouski Cell

“The people I work with when I volunteer bring me so much. I would not be the person I have become without this interaction. This is why, in all humility, I wish to pass on my values to other entrepreneurs, values such as respect, mobilisation, integrity, rigour and professional development. Mentorship, for me, is listening, questioning and sharing with the aim of helping business leaders to progress.”
