Mercy Corps is a leading global organization powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, we partner to put bold solutions into action -- helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within.
MicroMentor is an initiative within Mercy Corps. At MicroMentor, our mission is to leverage the power of mentoring to help small businesses thrive. We do so by offering entrepreneurs direct access to a pool of committed professional volunteer mentors via a website, found at www.micromentor.org and currently undergoing the development of a multi-platform user interface (IOS, Android, and Web app). MicroMentor has an expanding community making thousands of connections every year. Entrepreneurs matched with a mentor have shown positive results in terms of improved job creation, business survival, and revenue growth.
