Ask any successful business owner to pinpoint one of the biggest keys to their success, and they’ll likely point to the role a mentor played in guiding them through their business growth.  At DRCI, we believe in the power of a great mentor – which is why we’ve created a Mentorship Program unlike anything else in the region. Our exceptional team of business mentors offers real-world experience and insight gained through years (and in many cases decades) of business leadership. 

Our mentors are some of the Lowcountry’s most successful business professionals who are available to provide you with the experienced hands-on consulting support that can make all of the difference in ensuring the growth and success of your business. At DRCI, we actively work to pair our innovators with the most appropriate mentors for their specific industry and needs – and we offer mentors that are both highly experienced and engaged in the community – all with the business expertise and valuable contacts proven to help guide startups through all stages of their business development. 

Together with our team of business growth experts, our mentors will help guide you on all phases of the launch and growth of your business…and be a true partner in your success. 

Call us today or click here to request more information about how our mentorship program can match you with a business professional with proven success in your specific industry.  Or, if you are an experienced business professional who is looking to give back to the community, contact us to discuss how you can serve as a mentor and be part of the DRCI Mentorship Program.  


Our mentor system is one of the reasons the incubation system works, as our innovators learn from people who have "been there and done that".

If you have business expertise and would like to be involved with one of our innovators, we would love to speak with you.
