What People Are Saying
I didn’t think I could do it…I wanted to, but I didn’t have the belief in myself. And this program actually gave me the belief in myself, gave me a host of knowledge I never had and now I feel so excited about going out here and starting my own business. I’m very excited.View Programs
The each one teach one concept of being paired up with a mentor was the really exciting part for me and that’s where the biggest courage came in, that I didn’t have to figure it out by myself.View Programs
Being a Mentor with Charlotte's Inmates to Entrepreneurs (I2E) program allows me to empower aspiring entrepreneurs with the business tools that they need to be successful in our society. This notion is powerful because our I2E program strengthens not only our city, but also our state and country at large. All of the program participants that I have mentored in the I2E program are intelligent, industrious, and warm-hearted. They also have some of the most innovative business ideas that I have seen throughout my career as a business owner.Become A Mentor
Being a mentor has been great. I like giving back—I feel like the more success I have the more information I should give to the next person so they can have that same success.Become a Mentor
