Accelerate Success with CED Mentors

Time and time again, research has shown mentoring to be the single most important success factor for new ventures. Finding the right mentors for each venture is part art and part science. The CED VMS (Venture Mentoring Service) pairs entrepreneurial companies with a team of 3-4 mentors to help with major business challenges: making key hires, finding new customers, developing channel partners, seeking licensing deals, perfecting pricing models, deciding when and how to fundraise, and more.

In 2010, CED licensed the mentoring program developed by MIT and adapted it to leverage the vast CED network of serial entrepreneurs and C-level executives. CED VMS has helped more than 200 companies gain valuable insights from more than 80 active mentors.

CED VMS is a free resource for entrepreneurial companies.
