Whether as a team or as an individual, embarking on an entrepreneurial journey can be a rather lonely pursuit. The stakes are huge and the full responsibility lays solely in the hands of the founder(s). Having a devoted, qualified mentor who follows the progress and provides feedback in a process is therefore profoundly important. While mentor-mentee relationship depends mostly on the interpersonal fit, there are several factors to consider in mentorship/coaching matching, such as expertise, desired experience, backgrounds etc. to ensure the optimal collaboration. The session will discuss which aspects to pay attention to, reflect on challenges and limitations, present a case-study of a fellow organisation and host a successful mentor-mentee match that resulted in a founded company.
