MALTA — The Saratoga County Prosperity Partnership on Tuesday announced the launch of a news business mentorship program.
Circles of Seven, or C7, will connect owners of small- and medium-sized businesses with successful entrepreneurs to share their expertise.
Seven established business leaders will each meet monthly with six proteges over the next nine months.
The initial group of C7 mentors includes Theresa Agresta, partner, Allegory Studios; Ken Evans, partner and director of finance, Rewire Energy; Bob Mason, founder and managing director, Planetarium; Bob Manasier, entrepreneur in residence and new ventures manager, Innovate 518; Bruce Toyoma, vice president, product development, BessTech; Shaun Wiggins, president and CEO, Soteryx; and Phil Wilton, managing director, Strategic Global Group.
There are 42 positions open for proteges from small- and medium-sized businesses, which must have been in business for at least a year and have fewer than 20 full-time employees. Participation is open to anyone who owns or has controlling interest in a Saratoga County-based business and is the primary person responsible for its success.
