Are you an established business professional, entrepreneur, or investor with some time on your hands?
Do you want to play a bigger role in the exciting startup ecosystem?
Do you want to make a tangible difference in the lives of starting entrepreneurs and their journey?
Then, consider becoming a mentor in the virtualVC4A Mentor-Driven Capital Program this year.
‘Mentor-driven capital’ is one of VC4A’s approaches to creating value for startup ecosystems around the world. It’s about finding and supporting motivated and experienced mentors – like you – to share your knowledge, experience and network that you’ve acquired over your career with promising entrepreneurs. As you support your mentee on his/her entrepreneurial journey, you get keen insights into the local startup ecosystem and, and hone your own mentoring, business & leadership skills, among other things.
The goal of this program is to boost your ability as a high-powered mentor through the Mentor-Driven Capital framework we’ve developed. You and the selected fellow business leaders will receive expert guidance, training and hands-on support around mentoring, and join interactive sessions on topics like corporate partnership building and angel investing.
The program is open to a maximum of 20 aspiring business mentors in Egypt, or to those who have strong ties with – and interest in – Egypt. The only thing you need to invest during the approx. 4-month program is your valuable time, knowledge and network!
Note: We plan to kick-off on 28 June 2021 and end in September 2021.
Learn how to engage founders, the rules for mentorship, and how to maximize your impact as a business mentor. Share with industry experts, tap industry-leading knowledge, and engage your peers in this hands-on learning journey.
