Customized Mentoring for Women Entrepreneurs

The Women Business Mentoring Initiative is a nonprofit organization that provides free, individualized mentoring to women entrepreneurs whose business is at least three years old.

Each step of a company’s development requires a new vision and new perspectives. WBMI, through its voluntary mentors, provides a toolkit of skills and strategies that can be used in all the stages of a new company’s growth. Our mentors are women and men who have succeeded in their own businesses and are experts in their fields. Each mentoring relationship is tailored to the entrepreneur’s unique needs and objectives.

Founded in 2010 by Martine Liautaud and other alumni of the Stanford Business School, WBMI is a program of the Women Initiative Foundation, whose mission is to promote women in the economy and in business. Our growing number of institutional partners include Stanford Business School, BNP Paribas and ENGIE.

We invite you to read the stories of a few of our mentees and mentors – and to join us in this exciting work!
