Mentoring Startups

Our masterclass Mentoring Startups 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 start-up 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 2 meetings at the University of Amsterdam Business School, 2 informal discussion sessions will be organised in collaboration with startup accelerator Rockstart based in Amsterdam about startup 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.
