Mentorship & Advisory Services


Access to knowledgeable advice is critical to the successful development of early stage companies. Emergence is supported by a team of mentors with a broad base of knowledge spanning the development and commercialization spectrum. The incubator draws from experienced advisors from within the PEI Cluster, Canada and internationally for their specific subject matter expertise. Emergence’s mentorship services are modelled after the successful MIT Venture Mentorship Program.

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 companies lead their interactions with our mentors and advisors, determining the frequency and intensity of support they require.

To access our mentorship program, companies are required to apply to become an Emergence member. After acceptance into the Emergence program, companies can choose to participate in the mentorship program. If you choose to participate, your company will be assigned a mentor who can assist you in identifying priorities and solutions for your company. Your mentor 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.
