MentorConnect Open: At Eprenz PBC, one of our core values is to balance purpose and profit. The objective of this program is to contribute to the purpose of the company. There is a high rate of failure in the entrepreneurship world and we, at Eprenz PBC, would like to flip the rate from failure to success. Through this program, we are helping entrepreneurs globally who want to start a business, grow the business, and want a successful exit.

The purpose of mentoring is to connect an individual who has a lot of knowledge and experience in the field with someone who hasn’t gained the same knowledge or experience. We believe, whether in your career or life, having a mentor is crucial to all of our continued growth and development.


We have been running this program for the past 2 years every Thursday to provide entrepreneurial education to entrepreneurs all over the world at no cost. We have educated more than 1000 entrepreneurs representing more than 25 countries and have seen some great successes and achievements that our mentees have made. Furthermore, we are committed to providing good education, guidance, and support for entrepreneurs to succeed in their entrepreneurial journey.

From October-2021 we have changed the structure of the program and organized it around monthly themes such as starting a business, Business Model Canvas, Raising Funds, Marketing, Technology, etc., and inviting experts to speak and guide our mentees from all over the world. We are also providing rewards and certification for the program to attendees who complete the program successfully. We encourage you to participate and take advantage of the program.

Every Thursday MentorConnet Open is conducted by Eprenz PBC where our mentors and guest speakers participate in small group sessions, we organize workshops to educate and provide practical knowledge to our attendees. We have seen the importance of mentorship and how it can generate a positive impact in each entrepreneur’s journey. A mentoring program that is both well-planned and well-run can have a tremendous impact on the lives of many entrepreneurs.
