Place: The Foundry Room


interVivos Summer 2019 Mentorship Program Launch



  • 16 female mentors are introduced to 16 protégés at our program launch.
  • For the first time, we are gearing a mentorship program towards women mentors. All gender identities are welcome to register as protégés.
  • Prep sheets, promo material and an event program with mentor and protégé bios will be sent to you before the launch.
  • The launch is structured in a speed-rotation style, where mentors and protégés will discuss their goals and expectations in sixteen 7-minute conversations.
  • At the end of the launch, mentors and protégés rank their mentorship choices and interVivos makes the matches at the end of July.
  • Mentors and protégés are welcome to meet as often as they would like, but we require at least 3 in person meetings during the 6-month program (August 2019 to January 2020).
  • Protégés pay $80 to participate in the program. There is no charge for mentors.
  • interVivos performs check-ins throughout the 6-month program and provides resources to assist you with your match.

Light snacks will be provided and there is a cash bar. Free parking available.

Repeat protégés are welcome to register!
