EnCorps Feature

Expertise Needed

Connecting the entrepreneurial ecosystem requires a diverse and broad community of experts and mentors. These members of the ecosystem - the supporters and investors, are put in close contact with entrepreneurial iCat community members.

To that end, the MCE constantly reaches out to invite members of the community to provide pro-bono services such as legal, marketing, human resources and accounting advice on a rotating and on-call basis to residents and affiliates.

Successful and serial entrepreneurs are also being recruited to join the Entrepreneurial Corps, or EnCorps™, to provide advice and counsel to our entrepreneurs on a rotating or as-needed basis. Below are a few of our expert EnCorps™ members. If you're interested in giving back, contact us for consideration and to apply!
