Mentoring Programme

Benefit from high-profile business executives via 1-to-1 meetings with them! 

The Mentoring Programme, co-initiated with the French Trade Advisors, is an opportunity to have a mentor (business manager or experienced senior executive) providing advice and deep insights on a purely voluntarily basis to startups, Entrepreneurs and SME representatives in the midst of expanding their business in the region.


Retained applicants benefit from their mentor’s professional experience, contacts and/or advice through one-to-one meetings (online or face-to-face). Mentors' commitment is strictly personal (not a part of their company’s consultancy services, for example): the success of the programme is based on mutual trust, respect, confidentiality and interest in making progress. It has already proven to be an valuable platform for both Mentors and Mentees.


How does it work?

As Mentors and Mentees are not from the same company, an open and confidential dialogue is possible.

We offer 2 formats, depending on the challenges and needs:

  • DUO Mentoring Programme: A long-term mentoring commitment of 1 meeting per month for a period of 6 to 12-months, enabling a solid foundation to step on for advancement. Such programme allows time to manifest milestones in regards to the company strategy and/or major challenges. Open to Startups, Entrepreneurs or SME representatives with a minimum of 1 year existing business.


  • Laser Mentoring Programme: a 30-min meeting every week or a 60-min every 2 weeks for a maximum duration of 2 months, allowing a step-by-step and pragmatic approach dedicated to specific or short-term / mid-term challenge focused on sales, business development, finance, legal, etc. Open to Startups, Entrepreneurs or SME representatives at all stages of development.
