City Startup Labs (CSL) is looking for coaches and mentors for the Fall 2017 Class of the Center of Excellence.

CSL will be working with (1) African American Millennials and in 2018 a new population, (2) returning-citizens (formerly incarcerated).

Mentors will function as accountability partners for budding entrepreneurs over the course of 16 weeks, up to 6 months for the entirety of the session. Mentors aren't required to have special business skills, though it could be helpful.

Coaches volunteering with CSL will be asked to bring a business background, as they'll be required to work directly with the entrepreneur, helping to refine their business model, product and service prototypes and go-to-market strategy.

To understand the opportunity in more detail, go to the following presentation:
