Idea Navigator

Idea Navigators work with aspiring entrepreneurs that are new to RMMFI to help them create a high-level vision for their business and assess business feasibility and personal stability. Mentors help prepare entrepreneurs to enter our Business Launch Boot Camp and help connect them to other resources, as needed.

Boot Camp Mentor/Coach

Mentors and coaches support our entrepreneurs through RMMFI’s Launch program by providing real-world business knowledge and expertise (business mentors), financial understanding (financial mentors), and support to stay on track (accountability coaches).

Thrive Mentor

Thrive mentors are matched 1:1 with a graduate of our Business Launch Boot Camp to help them move past normal business hurdles and grow their business. Mentors are paired based on the entrepreneurs’ specific area of need.

Workshop Provider

Workshop providers share their expertise by helping design, lead, and facilitate Specialized Technical Assistance and “Whole Entrepreneur” workshops for current participants and graduates of our Business Launch Boot Camp. Workshops take place throughout the year and can be provided on a 1-time or ongoing basis.

Organizational volunteers provide additional capacity and expertise to RMMFI as we navigate opportunities to strengthen our organization and the programs we run.
