Coaching Benefits

There are several meaningful benefits to becoming a NEF coach.

The Shared Experience: Whether successful entrepreneurs or business executives, currently active or in transition, NEF coaches enjoy being a part of helping Michigan create jobs through innovation.

A Learning Experience: New and seasoned coaches are always learning from other coaches in how to best help entrepreneurs pitch their business idea to capture investor attention and recognition above other entrepreneurs competing for funding. They also learn about exciting new products, services, technology trends and business models.

An Enhanced Networking Environment: Coaches are NEF members and enjoy many networking opportunities with other like-minded professionals. Coaches form lasting business relationships with other coaches and entrepreneurial stakeholders. In addition to coaching teams, NEF coaches have opportunities to periodically coach for other entrepreneurial organizations, like SPARK, TechTown Detroit, and the University of Michigan.
