Experts are individuals who provide members advice in a specific domain (industry, function, region). The Personal Advocate or member will contact experts as required. The time commitment is expected to be 1 hour per month. More time may be required when there is a major project. In these cases, the network will try to form a team to support the entrepreneurs and reduce the time required of individual experts. Demeter is recruiting two cohorts of experts.
Peer experts have 3-10 years practical and/or academic experience in their domain. They may still be in graduate school or fully employed. We expect peer experts to be the first source members contact for advice and to have more hands-on involvement with members than senior experts. Peer experts have the opportunity to build their skills and experience through Demeter.
Senior experts have extensive work and domain experience. They will be contacted when greater operational experience is required.
