Manufacturing and other business mentors make the mHUB experience unique. Our mentors have extensive experience in manufacturing innovation, IoT, electronics and cutting edge technologies. In addition to industry experts, our mentor community also includes leaders in business development, sales and marketing, and legal and financial sectors. Our mentors hail from Chicago, the Midwest and across the U.S. They volunteer their time and expertise to offer guidance and leverage their networks in support of mHUB members. These generous contributions directly impact the success of our members and entrepreneurs.

Mentors commit to a four-month cohort period with three one hour sessions per month. Mentors are selected based on the skill set and knowledge demands of mHUB's member community.
