SHINSHURI owns all trademarks, business models, educational curricula, courseware products, videos, reference documentation, tool kits, learning platform, business systems, and Business Philanthropy (BP) technology (collectively the “BP Intellectual Property”).
We wish to highlight a few important clauses specific to these programs. These additional clauses are an addendum to this full Terms of Service Policy and are included herein for convenience as it relates specifically to the named programs.
Each prospective member must enroll in the MENTOR Leadership program via the Enrollment Form at OTA and complete the initial readiness assessment and orientation training. Once a prospective is accepted into the program, he or she becomes a new MENTOR initiate.
Members learn how to identify, plan, develop, and launch a conceptual business project or expand and grow an existing business. A detailed process is presented that shows entrepreneurs how to successfully plan, organize goals and objectives, assemble a board and operational team, and develop actions to create, build, market, and prove a business concept leading to successful launch of a business, product, program, or service. The MENTOR Leadership program has four exemplary leadership tracks which include:
- Track 1: Business Entrepreneur (for-profit)
- Track 2: Business Philanthropy (hybrid)
- Track 3: Ultimate Philanthropy Mobility (non-profit)
- Track 4: MENTOR Certification (business coaches)
Each Track consists of three phases, which include: Phase 1: 90-day Sprint, Phase 2: Pace to Success, and Phase 3: Social Learning Fund.
There are six membership plan options, which include:
- 90-day Sprint (Free)
- Pacer: Capacity Builder
- Pacer: Project Innovator
- Pacer: Platform Developer
- Fast Track
- Alumni Funding
Certification is a requirement to use any aspect of the Business Philanthropy technology and obtain certification as a licensed Business Philanthropist after successful completion of one of the program tracks. An individual social entrepreneur may obtain certification in one or more of the four exemplary leadership tracks which include:
- Track 1: Business Entrepreneur (for-profit)
- Track 2: Business Philanthropy (hybrid)
- Track 3: Ultimate Philanthropy (non-profit)
- Track 4: MENTOR Certification (business coaches)
A specific designation may be obtained by business entities interested in obtaining certification as an Authorized Business Philanthropy Service Provider.

When addressing financial matters or business results on the website, learning community, sales pages, videos, newsletters, programs or other materials, every effort has been made to accurately represent this program and its potential. SHINSHURI does not guarantee that you will earn any money or attain desired business results using the techniques, methods, and strategies contained in the materials provided. Examples in the materials are not to be interpreted as a promise or guarantee of earnings, business results, or financial sponsorship, secure grant funding, or capital investment. Earning potential is entirely dependent on the person and teams using the program, services, ideas, methods, and techniques. We do not purport this as a “get rich scheme.”
By purchasing a Membership or Business Services plan or subscription you accept, agree and understand that you take full responsibility for your progress and results in your business venture. Your level of success in attaining measurable results depends on the time and effort you devote to the program, ideas, methods, techniques, your finances, knowledge, and various skills.

If SHINSHURI and members continue their relationship, individually and respectively, a separate agreement shall be established between both parties.

The determination to fund a business project or entity is at the sole discretion of the funder (i.e., grant maker, corporate sponsor, donor, angel investor, etc.). Program materials are created for a general audience and should not be assumed, construed, or interpreted as information for any specific individual or business entity. SHINSHURI assumes no responsibility or liability for errors or omissions that may appear in any program materials.
