July 1, 2015 (New York, NY) - Today, the New York City Small Business Services (SBS) celebrated the announcement of its newest cohort for the 2015 Corporate Alliance Program/NYCEO Mentorship Program. After a competitively selective process, Aquila Leon-Soon, Founder & CEO, was selected to participate as one of this year's mentees.
In order to help M/WBE-certified and small businesses grow, SBS has partnered with the world-renowned Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO) and ten corporate partners to form the Corporate Alliance Program (CAP) to develop a highly-impactful mentorship program. Some of those corporate partners include Accenture, American Express, BNY Mellon, Citi, Colgate-Palmolive and Goldman Sachs. Over the course of the 26-week mentorship program, Ms. Leon-Soon will receive business guidance and support from a successful entrepreneur.
During the course of the program, participants will meet with their mentors to work on business and leadership goals, attend learning seminars on relevant business topics presented by executives from the corporate partner organizations, as well as be advised by an executive from a CAP corporate partner on specific business challenges.
