Access to knowledgeable advice is critical to the successful development of early stage companies.

Emergence clients are supported by mentors with a broad base of knowledge spanning product development and commercialization. Our program draws from experienced advisors from the PEI Cluster, across Canada, and internationally. Our mentors are recognized for their specific subject matter expertise.

Emergence’s mentorship takes the form of both one-on-one and team-based mentorship services – which are modelled after the highly-regarded MIT Venture Mentoring Service.

Our program is based on the principle that entrepreneurs know their companies and are in the best position to determine when help is needed. Our clients lead their interactions with our mentors and advisors, determining the frequency and intensity of support they require.

To access our mentorship program, companies are first required to apply to become an Emergence member.

After acceptance into the Emergence program, companies can elect to participate in our team mentorship program. If you choose to participate, your company will be assigned a team of mentors who will assist you in identifying priorities and solutions for your company. Your mentors will also be responsible for identifying the ideal time to increase the size and breadth of expertise of your mentorship team.

Emergence mentors are volunteers specifically selected for their achievements and demonstrated expertise.
