Noble Grads
Friends, I've recently started helping a non-profit called Entrepreneurship for All with the launch of their new program in Lynn, MA. EforAll helps aspiring entrepreneurs from low-income areas. We have an intensive Accelerator program, and each entrepreneur who participates gets personalized mentorship from experienced businesspeople. Can you think of one person who might be interested in becoming a mentor? Are you interested? A retired parent? Thx!
