Abstract This thesis explores the role of mentorship in entrepreneurial ventures. With staggering failure rates of entrepreneurial firms, the study of the determinants of success and failure of entrepreneurs is abundant. Among the key determinants of success are the factors comprising the human capital of entrepreneurs. Using models and theories based on corporate mentorship, this thesis bridges the gap between the study of entrepreneurial human capital and mentorship. Relying on seventeen interviews with a variety of entrepreneurs from around the country, this thesis identifies the significance placed on mentorship, reveals the models these relationships can take, and identifies the primary benefits of mentorship among entrepreneurs.
