About the Program

The Raj Manek Mentorship Program is the leading provider of business coaching, mentorship, and complementary tools to small and medium-sized entrepreneurs who demonstrate a strong desire and readiness for personal and professional growth in Saskatchewan and Alberta.

One on One Mentorships poster Mentorship is a non-hierarchical process made possible by clear communication, openness and trust. We provide one-on-one mentorship for a mentor and protégé pair. This relationship is not one-sided, and instead, it is an interactive sharing environment which results in an enriching, mutual learning experience.

How It Works

We focus on recruiting and selecting knowledgeable and experienced business-minded individuals within various industries, to dedicate their time and effort to being a mentor within our program. These individuals act as mentors for less knowledgeable and experienced business owners and/or entrepreneurs who are eager to learn!

We carefully select each mentor and protégé based on personal and professional goals, values and needs, striving to achieve a perfect fit. Wherever possible, we take into account the industry of the entrepreneur  and aim to match them with a mentor in a similar, yet non-competing industry professional. However, we know that the perfect fit may be different to some. Because of this, we offer our extended services; if either mentor or protégé is unhappy with their match, we gladly re-match the individuals for maximum satisfaction and the best results.

Mentors and protégés will meet regularly each month for the course of one year. During this time, the pair will have the opportunity to share experiences, discuss goals and objectives, problems and solutions, and work together on improving business materials such as business plans.

Peer to Peer mentorship Poster

Peer-to-peer mentorship is designed specifically to help our protégés address issues and challenges they experience in their businesses. It offers a safe and supportive environment for entrepreneurs who share similar concerns and different areas of expertise to learn from each other.

Group meetings are held every quarter for 2 to 3 hours to discuss a specific topic. The same protégés continue to work together for the full year. Each protégé is given approximately 15 minutes to talk about issues in their business and the whole group discusses what may have worked for them and find solutions collectively.

Additionally, a specialist on the topic from the business community is invited to give advice, listen , brainstorm and provide support, while fostering and maintaining a cohesive and comfortable environment. The expert helps to overcome protégés’ barriers, build confidence, bring new skills and knowledge and overall, help protégés on their path to success.
