Venture Mentoring Team Certification

VMT Certification assures that our mentors attain the highest standards of mentoring skills and provide entrepreneurs with the best possible mentoring in a safe environment. Potential VMT mentors go through an evaluation process that starts with a background review by the VMT Membership Committee comprised of our most experienced mentors.

Those applicants with extensive relevant experience in their professions are then interviewed by the membership committee. Personal characteristics such as intelligence, the ability to work in a team environment and a purely altruistic motivation to mentor are assessed. Those applicants that pass the committee review are then extensively background checked to further determine suitability to mentor. Candidates then go through the VMT training program which teaches the VMT mentoring methodology and the techniques and process of VMT mentoring. The mentor candidate then participates in 20 hours of team mentoring with one or more mentoring teams in order to gain additional mentoring skills while simultaneously being assessed by his teammates. Upon successful completion of the team mentoring phase, the candidate is certified as a VMT mentor.

The VMT mentor training program is available to other organizations including academic institutions, business development organizations and both for profit and not for profit accelerators and incubators.
