Become A Mentor!

“One of the greatest values of mentors is the ability to see ahead what others cannot see and to help them navigate a course to their destination” – John C. Maxwell

DRA Ventures prides itself on creating lasting business mentorships for all grant recipients by pairing each recipient with local Dallas business leaders. Get your business questions answered, receive feedback on ideas or plans and get helpful advice from those who were in your shoes and have grown their own businesses to success.

We are always looking for more Dallas leaders to join our network of mentors and help bring new perspectives to our growing entrepreneurs! If you want to help a new entrepreneur improve key skills, teach new business methods and strategies while helping create more confidence and give back to your local community, please reach out to us here.
