A mentor can be a deciding difference for a successful start-up.
The more qualified they are, the bigger impact they make.

WE LOVE MENTORS is here to release the full potential of the mentor and mentee relationship through carefully designed programs. By matching and developing the relationship, we bring true value by improving the impact of your entrepreneurship program.

A different approach
While the general use of mentors is now recognized globally, many organizations still use a somewhat arbitrary approach to the concept of mentoring. They are often based on personal network and intuitive decisions.
Over the years of managing many mentoring programs, I spotted a need for a more systematic, academic and professional way of recruiting in order to prepare the mentors and improve their overall quality.
Based on these learnings, the WLM program offers you:

  • A more careful screening of candidates.
  • An open, objective selection process that has resemblance to hiring.
  • Embrace a more diverse group of mentors to ensure a broader range of experience and skills.
  • Maximum synergy between the mentor and mentee during the program.
  • Facilitating the right match between the mentor and mentee.
  • A fixed and rigid deadline for finishing the program increases the motivation to finish.

”When the right mentors with the right attitude and motivation are recruited and matched with local, ambitious entrepreneurs, something happens: Trust is quickly established, new ideas come, and the journey of the start-ups takes off.”

 

It’s my belief that mentors are an extraordinary group of people with a specific type of mindset that’s willing to help and support others. A mindset that derives from generosity – and unfolds through the close dialogue between the mentor and the mentee.
I believe this mindset deserves the best possible tools and preparation.

“The right team of mentors and the development of skills will make the difference you need”

The mentoring moment
It has been said that the only way to do great work is to love what you do. It is safe to say that I love working with mentors. I live for what I call the “mentoring moment”. The moment when mentor and mentee, through working closely with each other, experience an emotion of absolute presence which leads to new insights for both parties
