Guiding the next generation
The goal of Rutgers Entrepreneurs Mentoring Program (REMP) is to provide individualized help and guidance to Rutgers students, faculty, staff, alumni and New Jersey entrepreneurs who are in the process of starting or growing entrepreneurial ventures.
Over the course of the program, mentors help mentees:
- Develop a better understanding of their business and industry;
- Locate business contacts;
- Learn about potential funding sources;
- Make better decisions about the critical issues facing their companies
