Each year, Inc identifies non-profit organizations devoted to entrepreneurship whose members will benefit from the Inc. 5000 community and it’s commitment to mentorship. This year, Inc. will be working to help two groups: emerging entrepreneurs of color and military entrepreneurs.

Inc’s talented group of Inc. 5000 CEOs step up and pay it forward—devoting their time and smarts as well as sharing their personal journey—to provide one-on-one mentoring to each group.

Each mentee will be paired with up to three CEOs who do a deep dive on their aspiration origins and business vision to help focus their strategies and accelerate their next steps.
