The Entrepreneur Mentor Society (EMS) is a non-profit organization that aims to foster the education and development of young and aspiring entrepreneurs in the Los Angeles area.
What is EMS?
The Entrepreneur Mentor Society is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization designed to educate, promote, and develop aspiring young entrepreneurs.
We seek to create a network of today’s talented, brilliant, and powerful college students and young professionals to become tomorrow’s entrepreneurs by providing:
- Eight (8) Saturday sessions per semester with a wide-range of successful business owners, executives, and entrepreneurs who highlight a specific business topic (i.e. finance, marketing, logistics, operations, IPO).
- Possible one-on-one mentorship opportunities with successful entrepreneurs
- Insights into the crucial elements necessary to succeed as an entrepreneur.
Saturday Sessions are 2-3 hour meetings with successful business owners and executives. The guest speaker will discuss the history of his/her startup, explain the nature of the business, highlight relevant business issues and impart general expert advice derived from years of experience. All meetings end with a Q&A session where participants can obtain further advice and clarification. After meeting 30+ successful entrepreneurs in the course of a year (two semesters), members will get a holistic view of “what it takes” to become a successful entrepreneur.
EMS is open to any aspiring entrepreneur. Priority is given to high-achieving college-level, graduate-level and young professional applicants who have a sincere desire to become an entrepreneur. Acceptance into the program is highly competitive and requires the submission of an application. Only 40-45 participants are selected each semester from the hundreds of applicants in the greater Los Angeles area.
