Select a mentor that best suits the business idea.
Make appointments as far in advance as possible and be on time for the appointment.
Show respect for the mentor’s time.
Come prepared to present your idea in a concise professional manner.
Perform as much research as possible in advance of your mentoring session to avoid asking questions that could be answered by a simple internet search.
Dress in appropriate attire.
Recognize that a mentor, at his or her discretion, may be willing to introduce you to potential funding opportunities. It is inappropriate for students to solicit individual investment funds from a mentor.
Agree that the mentors are offering their time, experience, and advice on a strictly voluntary basis. It is the student’s sole discretion to use or not to use the advice given. Mentors and BYU do not have liability and are held harmless for your ultimate business decisions.
Recognize that it is a good practice to express appreciation to the mentor with a thank-you note or email.
Violation of the Student Code of Conduct may result in expulsion from the program.
