Clarity’s Network of Experts Joins Startup Canada’s Canadian Mentorship Challenge

Posted by Rob Lewis

Canadian startup Clarity has partnered with Startup Canada's Canadian Mentorship Challenge to mentor 10,000 Canadians during Global Entrepreneurship Week this month.

The Canadian Mentorship Challenge is a nation-wide challenge encouraging organizations and groups across Canada to host events that collectively mentor more than 10,000 enterprising Canadians in one week. A customized Startup Canada page of mentors participating in the Challenge will be added to the Clarity website. This will complement Clarity’s experts who answer questions on topics such as raising capital, customer acquisition and legal considerations.

“I’m excited to partner with Clarity to support stronger connections between Canadian entrepreneurs and the broader community of experts provided through Clarity’s virtual network,” said Victoria Lennox, cofounder of Startup Canada. “Clarity’s one-on-one phonecalls will be a great addition to the face-to-face mentorship events happening on the ground across Canada during Global Entrepreneurship Week.”

Since launching in May 2012,  Moncton-based Clarity has surpassed 12,000 calls around the world. Dan Martell, CEO of Clarity, knows the value a conversation can have for struggling or new entrepreneurs.

"As entrepreneurs, we’ve all been in that position—what else can I do or where do I go from here?” said Martell. “We’re about conversations that get entrepreneurs unstuck.  We move beyond the question-answer basics to advice that can really impact an entrepreneur’s career from the best source: those that have been there before.”

The idea for the Canadian Mentorship Challenge was inspired through feedback from entrepreneurs during Startup Canada’s National Tour earlier this year.
