Mentoring

Benefit from experience.

build! mentoring program

build! Mentoring in cooperation with ASEP – Austrian Senior Experts Pool

The build! mentoring programme brings new entrepreneurs together with experts from the Austria-wide ASEP pool of experienced and successful experts from many different fields of business.

In our build! Advanced II and Premium programmes we link our entrepreneurs up with mentors. You choose your own mentor from the pool and they will be there for you for a period of 8 or 12 months. You benefit not only from their expertise and advice but also from their networks of further business contacts.

How it works

Matching

First we have to match you up with the right person, which is the key step for the mentoring to be successful. This involves careful consideration of your business goals and the mentors’ profiles.

Kick-Off

Mentors and mentees get to know each other for the first time at the kick-off event. The founding teams present their idea again to the present experts before topics and goals are discussed and defined together. These serve as the basis for future cooperation.

Mentoring

Over the following period the entrepreneurs and the individual selected mentor stay in touch and exchange ideas, report back on progress, get further suggestions, try these out, etc. There is also the possibility to have consulting meetings with other mentors from the pool where appropriate (cross-mentoring).
