This is a wonderful way to give back and make an impact in the community. It was so rewarding for me to be able to share my professional skills in my work here at Hewlett Packard Enterprise and help grow a young nonprofit.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Advising
Young companies face many challenges—perhaps none as critical as a lack of access to senior management counsel and experience. The advice and support of seasoned professionals can make a huge difference to a new entrepreneur or fledgling nonprofit.
Introducing Hewlett Packard Enterprise Advising, where Hewlett Packard Enterprise employees are matched with individuals and organizations to work through business challenges and provide guidance and support. For entrepreneurs, it’s a chance to gain access to skilled professionals to achieve their goals. For our employees it’s a unique opportunity to make a real difference in someone’s life while expanding your horizons.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Advising is part of Hewlett Packard Enterprise Living Progress—creating a better future for everyone through our actions and innovations.
To make this program possible, HPE has partnered with MicroMentor, a nonprofit that enables advising relationships through their online platform. The Hewlett Packard Enterprise Advising group is a closed group for HPE employees and invited entrepreneurs and nonprofits on the MicroMentor platform. Group members are invited to make advising relationships that fit best for them. Participants may find the best match by staying within the HPE Advising group or by connecting with one of the many current users of the open MicroMentor community.
Our Hewlett Packard Advisor has been phenomenal at helping us figure out what the problem is that we’re really trying to solve, and then helping us solve it!
