Rochester Public Schools is hatching a new program this fall – INCubatoredu. This is the first program in the State of Minnesota and we are seeking real entrepreneurs and business experts to serve as volunteer coaches and mentors for our students.

We’re looking for mentors and coaches to be involved with this new opportunity.

Stop by to learn more, enjoy refreshments, and network.

16 coaches • 8 coached lessons per semester
As a Coach, your role is to work with students in their class as you help them learn the material you present through lectures and activities. You will choose the lesson that aligns with your area of business expertise, e.g. marketing, finance, sales. A lesson with presentations, student activities, and curated resources will be provided to you. If you wish, you may replace the professional examples used in the lesson with your experiences.

1 mentor per team • approx. 5 teams per section
As a mentor, your role is to facilitate learning, which is different than directly teaching. Students will look to you for answers, but what they really need is help learning how to find the answers themselves. In general, mentors will meet with their student teams once a week for at least an hour. The energy and effort will increase before key milestones such as the Minimum Viable Product Pitch near the academic year’s midpoint and at the year’s end for Investor Pitch.
