Connections To Inspire.

Are you a student interested in connecting with an industry professional? Are you looking to help inspire up and coming talent?



We need people like you for our Mentor Match program.

This program is offered to students and professionals upon registration for the 2020 UNC Clean Tech Summit.


[*The 2020 Mentor Match program is closed. Please consider participating in the 2021 event.] 


How do I register for Mentor Match?

Both students and mentors will sign up as part of the registration process. Click ‘yes’ for the question about participating in the Mentor Match program. In your UNC Clean Tech Summit registration confirmation email, you will see separate links for students/mentee and industry professionals/mentor to complete registration in the Mentor Match program. Please click on the link and provide in the confirmation email to provide brief additional information for our teams to create 1:1 or small group matches.

Once registered, how will I connect with my mentor/mentee?

Our team will introduce you to your mentor via email in February before the Summit.

When do we meet up?

There will be 30-minute blocks of time on both days of the Summit to help you schedule time to meet (check the app in mid-January). You are welcome to work together to set time that works for all.

Why participate?

Learn about career paths and provide shared insights with industry professionals. Our mentors volunteer for this program to pay-it-forward and connect with students about issues that matter: your career, the future of clean tech and life-lessons to help as you begin your professional life.


“One of the most rewarding aspects of attending the UNC Clean Tech Summit was talking with the students. Their ideas and enthusiasm were energizing and I was thrilled to share my experiences and mentor future leaders in the clean tech sector.”
