Our masterclass Mentoring Startups aims to further develop your mentoring and coaching skills. During 2 half-day sessions on 16 June and 22 September 2021, you get updated on the scientific basis and best practices of start-up coaching and mentoring. There are 3 months between sessions, so you have the opportunity to put into practice and reflect on what you have learned. In between these 2 meetings, 2 informal discussion sessions will be organised in collaboration with startup accelerator Rockstart based in Amsterdam about startup mentoring. These sessions will also be open to Rockstart’s mentors to facilitate the informal exchange of experiences between startup mentors. Due to covid-19 regulations these sessions might take place online. The programme is fully booked, you can enter the waiting list if you are interested.
