Mentor Connections

Experience. Enthusiasm. Expertise. Our mentors truly bring Edacity alive!

What is Mentor Connections?


The Mentor Connections experience is designed to work in concert with the Innovation Bank resources delivered in classrooms, or can stand alone. We have recruited a growing network of individuals with a diverse range of skills and experience in the entrepreneurial world.  These mentors can connect with students in a variety of ways – anything from visiting classes to share their story, to assisting in project development, to working one-on-one with a student to take a product idea from conception through to reality.

Mentors: The Teacher Perspective


“I really appreciated the opportunity to access real entrepreneurs.  People who have ‘done it’ in the real world really spark curiosity in my students.”

Stephanie B.

St. Martin de Porres High School, CSSD
