Mentoring Start-ups

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.
