“Mentoring is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be.” Eric Parsloe, The Oxford School of Coaching & Mentoring
In addition to the lecturer, students MUST engage an “expert” to help focus the project and to add real world context and expertise.
Teams should meet three to four times with their mentor in order to receive guidance.
Mentors are local entrepreneus that, altruistically and disinterested, help you come closer to reality and entrepreneurship.
Mentors are assigned to projects based on their characteristics, so you will know who is your mentor after the presentation of the business idea.
