A Santa Barbara non-profit entrepreneurship Group announces the launch of Mentorship Works.


April 1st, 2014 | Santa Barbara, CA – A Santa Barbara non-profit entrepreneurship Group announces the launch of Mentorship Works. The organization matches local entrepreneurs with successful expert business mentors to help guide them during the challenging phase of launching and growing a new business and making strategic career decisions.

The Web site location at www.mentorshipworks.com, takes mentor and mentee applications and handles all aspects of the mentor/mentee matching. Mentorship Works announced their first networking and lecture event which will take place at the Montecito Country Club on May 14th, 2014 from 5:30 – 8pm and features world renowned technology entrepreneur Kevin O’Connor (Doubclick and FindtheBest)

The Mentorship Works organization is committed to helping entrepreneurs navigate the many challenges encountered when starting a new business and handling major career changes.

The organization does this by matching entrepreneurs with experienced mentors with individuals just starting out. ”We believe entrepreneurs provide the framework for economic resurgence. However, there are simply not enough programs and small business services that provide customized and focused programs catering to the individual entrepreneur”, said SiBelle Israel, president of Mentorship Works.

“We believe that there is no better resource than an engaged mentor. Any successful executive has received valuable mentorship at some point in their career. Our inaugural event scheduled for May 14 at the Montecito Country Club will be an opportunity to sign up as many new entrepreneurs and mentors as possible”. Israel concluded.

The event is FREE for members. Becoming a member simply means signing up on the www.mentorshipworks.com Web site as a mentor or mentee. For non-members the cost is $15 in advance, $20 at the door. The unveiling of the program is from 5:30 to 8pm on May 14th. Venue is located at 920 Summit Rd. The event will feature technology entrepreneur Kevin O’Connor founder and CEO of FindtheBest.com.

All proceeds from this event will benefit the Junior League of Santa Barbara and to assist in funding the expansion of Mentorship Works, to serve even more people through its free outreach efforts.
