Budding entrepreneurs across Wyoming will have access to experienced mentors through a new network being launched by the Wyoming Business Council (WBC) and the University of Wyoming’s Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (IIE).
The High Plains Mentor Network is intended to increase the chances of success of Wyoming entrepreneurs in their startup endeavors, providing cost-free guidance from those with experience in launching successful ventures.
“We will draw upon mentors from within Wyoming and the broader UW alumni network outside of the state to find successful entrepreneurs who want to ‘give back,’” says Peter Scott, entrepreneur in residence in the IIE and UW’s College of Engineering and Applied Science. “These sorts of programs have worked well around the country, and Wyoming and UW have plenty of successful individuals whose expertise can be tapped -- as well as people who can benefit from that knowledge and experience.”
