Mentoring and peer-to-peer learning are well recognized as important interventions to support Social Technopreneurship because they allow the transfer of knowledge from direct experiences and learning of one Social Technopreneur to another.

Generativity is a broad concept that describes the desire to give back to society, to grow and help others succeed, and to preserve the Community of Practice for future generations. In Social Techno-preneurship, generativity is demonstrated by nurturing and guiding new Social Technopreneurs while contributing to the next generation of Social Technopreneurship educators and mentors.

A Mentoring Champ plays a significant role in the establishment of mentoring programs, services and systems to support Social Techno-preneurs in their pursuit of Social Technopreneurship. They are owners and drivers of mentoring initiatives in their local context, and serve as the main resource person for any mentoring related concerns and needs.
Mentoring can take place within a wide variety of settings such as in a residential treatment or group living environment, on-site at an organization's facilities, in schools, or in the community. Mentoring is often part of a larger array of services offered to children, youth, and adults in need, but can equally be provided by organizations solely dedicated to mentoring.
Mentoring is not a new concept; it has its roots in ancient Greece. And throughout the millennia, mentoring, or providing guidance and counsel to a younger individual, has occurred spontaneously as informal relationships: a supervisor at work who takes an interest in a young person’s upward mobility; a teacher who takes extra time with a struggling or promising student; an older family member who provides advice or counsel when needed.
Social Technopreneurship Mentoring is an intentional, time-proven strategy that can help young people of all circumstances achieve their potential.
It focuses on developing the Social Technopreneur as an individual, and ensuring every Social Technopreneur has the support they need to thrive in their careers and businesses.
