This is a guest post by Jennifer Cohen, director of mentorship for PACT.

It’s October in Philadelphia. The actual baseball fields here are getting ready for off-season maintenance, but innovation has no offseason here.

When it comes to entrepreneurial mentorship, we’re already a city of champions — and while the Mentor Connect lineup of mentors and leaders is deep, tryouts are always open, and recruiting never stops.

If you are an experienced CEO founder with significant and relevant experience to innovation-focused companies, and are willing to volunteer one to two days per month of your time, you may qualify for Mentor Connect, which pairs mentors with the next wave of Philadelphia’s innovators.

Why you should join

Mentor Connect is proud partner of 1Philadelphia and the City of Philadelphia’s Most Diverse Tech Hub initiative, which places specific focus on supporting founders from underrepresented backgrounds. If you’re willing to help budding founders truly see what they can be, we can help you find them.

These are just a few of the power hitters and clutch players who are helping the next generation of leaders and companies to round the bases of progress everyday, and land each pitch into the 700 level.

So, do you think you’ve got the hustle to join this team? Could you be our next all-star? If so, reach out to Jen Cohen at to schedule a tryout. Cleats and knickers are optional.
