Our Mentoring Start-ups Masterclass aims to further develop your mentoring and coaching skills. During 2 half-day sessions on 15 April and 24 June 2020, you get updated on the scientific basis and best practices of startup coaching and mentoring. There are 2 months between sessions, so you have the opportunity to put into practice and reflect on what you have learned. In between these two meetings at the University of Amsterdam Business School, two informal discussion sessions will be organized in collaboration with start-up accelerator Rockstart based in Amsterdam about start-up mentoring on 29 April and 27 May 2020. These sessions will also be open to Rockstart’s mentors to facilitate the informal exchange of experiences between startup mentors.
During the masterclass you will study theory and best practices. There is also plenty of time for reflection on your own experiences as well as those of your fellow participants. In the 2nd session, you’ll attend a guest lecture by an experienced startup mentor to further inspire you.
You will study the following subjects:
This masterclass is designed for start-up coaches and start-up mentors. In particular those working in the context of an entrepreneurship programme, such as a start-up incubator or accelerator. Whether you are a seasoned mentor or a relative newcomer, we look forward to welcoming you.
