Mentor Interest - PVD Design Catalyst 2019
Providence Design Catalyst grantees have experienced varying levels of success being a design business. These entrepreneurs are first and foremost designers: creative entrepreneurs with talent, vision, and often a product. To take their vision and talent to the next level, they will benefit from the advice and counsel from experienced business and entrepreneurial leaders.

The goal of the mentorship is to help PVD Design Catalyst awardees create clear strategies for their business and realistic goals. As a mentor, you’ll act as a sounding board to the design business and as an expert, you’ll offer strategic thinking to help ensure the business has set appropriate milestones and are on good track to meet them.

- Work closely with your mentee as a sounding board & help them reach their milestones and growth goals as a business.
- Meet once / twice a month with your mentee from January - June 2019. Be available by phone/email for your mentee.
- Meet with the entire mentor group at least two times dueing the program to discuss the progress of the cohort as a whole and advise businesses as appropriately.
- Attend Program Kickoff in January 2019 and the Final Showcase event in late May 2019.
- Approximately 12-15 hours of your time between January – June 2019.

Thank you for your interest in being a mentor for the program! Mentors are paired with grantees according to the needs & type of design businesses. Last year we had 13 design businesses as a part of the cohort, thus 13 mentors.

If we do not find a match for the 2019 Design Catalyst program, we would love to have you a part of future Catalyst programs and other mentorship opportunities we are developing for the design community.

We will be in touch December 2018 / January 2019 as we finalize the grantees and start the mentor-mentee match up process. If you have any questions, please email CC at
