HELP MAKE US BETTER
Together with our partners, we believe a well networked and supported entrepreneurship ecosystem will be a key driver of sustainable economic growth. COLE works with Corporate, Strategic and Fulfillment Partners along side our Local Experts.
COUNCIL OF LOCAL EXPERTS
In the chain of collaboration, COLE provides mentoring, networking and peer-learning opportunities for entrepreneurs and professionals. The aim is for seasoned local business leaders to mentor the next crop of hopeful leaders to reduce the number of local startups that fail to scale.
There are a lot of moving parts to building the right connections to providing the needed advice, many of which are not our core competency. To fulfill the needs of our community we enlist the help of Fulfillment Partners.
From venues to catering and digital marketing to photographers and videographers, we work with fulfillment partners to deliver events, build awareness and share learnings.
COLE is keen to work with corporate partners who can help us enhance our social impact by providing funding or access to new networks, skills and resources.
The aim of our corporate partnerships is to build relationships with corporations that share in our goals and are eager to achieve joint objectives. In return, we offer exposure packages, market access and social credit.
We welcome new experts who fulfill our criteria and are willing to volunteer their time and knowledge. We are especially interested in women entrepreneurs form all sectors to balance our growing list Local Experts.
