MIZZOU VMS Entrepreneur/Venture Reporting Requirements

Because we are almost entirely a volunteer organization, we need your help in tracking meetings and advice. As part of your Mizzou VMS requirements, you will need to provide the following:

Here are a few guidelines:


  1. In most cases, the timing of the next meeting will be determined by you and your progress.
  2. When you contact Mizzou VMS to schedule a meeting, please prepare a short list of the agenda items you would like to cover.
  3. This agenda will be provided to the Mentor Team in advance of your meeting to assist them in preparing their thoughts.
  4. You may also include any additional materials you believe would be useful.


  1. Submit the meeting summary within 24 hours.
  2. Include a list of the participants.
  3. You’re not expected to take detailed minutes. Just describe the major topics and issues that were covered and any critical items that arose in the discussion.
  4. You should also list your homework assignments or any “To Do” items, including any for the Mentors or Mizzou VMS.
  5. Don’t worry about your prose; an outline or bullet points are just fine. Most summaries will be ½ to ¾ of a page.
  6. For your convenience this form may be accessed and submitted online at https://mizzouvms.missouri.edu/vms-forms/mentoring-sessions/new


We would really appreciate receiving your feedback. This helps us in our efforts to ensure that we are providing you with a high quality of service. Your comments will not be included with your meeting notes. Instead, they will be kept separately and confidentially within the Mizzou VMS office for use in helping us to evaluate and improve our services.

  1. Rate the meeting on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the best.
  2. Comment on what you liked about the meeting/what you found most helpful.
  3. Comment on what you didn't like about the meeting/what you would change.
  4. Provide any additional thoughts, comments, or suggestions.
  5. For your convenience this form may be accessed and submitted online at https://mizzouvms.missouri.edu/vms-forms/reporting-feedback/new.


Your Lead Mentor or the Mizzou VMS staff will check in with you periodically regarding your status and progress. We expect you to respond to these inquiries in a timely fashion, even if your response is just to let us know that you are busy right now or not in need of Mizzou VMS services. We also expect you to let us know when you need services. Please don’t wait for us to contact you. We encourage you to email or call with questions, meeting requests, other needs, and concerns as they arise. We will make every effort to respond in a timely and helpful fashion. Of course, if you give us some lead time, it’s easier to make sure that we can schedule a meeting or provide other assistance.
