Mentorship

Lack of constant, longer time mentors’ support is identified as one of the most actual issues for the teams in most of entrepreneurship encouragement, business acceleration programs.

Project Creazone Reinvent teams have received a lot questions, advises and suggestions regarding their business idea development during last trainings phases. But to increase idea’s development success through the following business idea development journey, till the end of our project they need mentor, who could help to move forward with the idea development.

We ask you to become a mentor for our Creazone project teams.

 

Mentorship should help participants develop formulated business idea from current stage to the following Crezaone stages. Mentor should help teams to prioritize the most important steps, to set sequence of steps, set tasks and monitor these tasks implementation. It is desirable teams to start creating and to create prototype to have something more tangible than just an idea on Demo day.

Mentorship could be implemented using face to face meetings or remote, Skype or other, communication means.
