PIMCO has teamed up with MicroMentor to connect its employees to small business entrepreneurs, nonprofits, and social entrepreneurs from around the world. Employees use their expertise to engage in a virtual mentoring relationship that will drive real change in small businesses and organizations.
MicroMentor, a Mercy Corps initiative, is an online mentoring platform that connects entrepreneurs, experienced professionals, and corporate volunteers in meaningful, one-to-one mentoring relationships. MicroMentor’s unique solution – a combination of the web-based platform, a growing community of thousands of mentors and entrepreneurs, plus dedicated programmatic support – makes this a one-of-a-kind mentoring solution.
The MicroMentor online platform helps mentors and mentees create matches to develop a meaningful online mentoring relationship. Our employees and their mentees work together to identify mentee’s business needs and create a workplan using employees’ specific talents to address some of their biggest challenges.
