About Oasis

OASIS connects small businesses facing unique challenges (mentees) with experienced entrepreneurs and community representatives (mentors) to provide them with the support, resources and guidance necessary to explore their entrepreneurial goals through tactical mentorship activities. OASIS also offers professional development opportunities to all participants on an ongoing basis.

Mentors do not write plans and proposals, conduct research, or engage in any other form of work on behalf on the Mentee. The Mentor’s role is to share their expertise and provide direct advice. By addressing the unique needs of the individual mentees, results can be seen in a short period. This is where OASIS will make a measurable difference.

Participants are mentored approximately 30 minutes a week for 12 weeks during which they work with a mentor on a specific business challenge. Participants are also invited to attend various professional development sessions scheduled over the 12 weeks.

  • You are a budding or already established entrepreneur who wants to build a successful business.
