Our Mission & Values
Minneapolis Business Mentors volunteers are a diverse team of individuals brought together by the mission to advise and support entrepreneurs and small business owners with skills, experiences, knowledge, talents and abilities to help them start, guide and grow their businesses.
To achieve our mission, we provide our services at low or no cost to clients. Our team members are driven by their desire to give back to the Minnesota business community by helping anyone who requests our services. Our goal is to help them succeed in their business ventures.
As a 5013c non-profit, we are financially sustained by the funds some of our services provide and by sponsors who align with our mission and goals and donate to support our organizations’ work.
We partner with individuals and organizations who support our mission and are willing to volunteer their time and talents to help our organization succeed. We do not accept payment, affiliated income, or other in-kind services.
Commitment to Client: We develop relationships that make a positive impact in the lives and businesses of our clients.
Integrity: We are honest, transparent and committed to doing what’s best for our clients and our organization. We are non-political and operate with no hidden agendas. We are ethical and show respect for all.
Listening: We believe in listening first. We seek to understand before advising. Non-Judgmental: We don’t judge a client’s business, ideas or opinions. We facilitate their understanding of what it takes to build and grow their business to achieve success.
Diversity: We are inclusive of clients and team members. Our individual differences strengthen our organization and the trust and respect we have for each other improves our outcomes. We are committed to building an encouraging, supportive environment
Teamwork: MBM’s success is dependent upon the collective knowledge, skills, energy, experience, intelligence and contributions of our team members. We leverage our combined team resources to improve our work with clients, our team and our partners. We are united in helping clients and each other in achieving our mission.
