build! Mentoring

Once you have become self-employed, you are often faced with great challenges. In such cases it helps to be able to turn to an outside party who help you to identify problems and to approach them in a special manner.

Mentoring allows for a comprehensive transfer of knowledge from experienced entrepreneurs who already possess expertise and an extensive knowledge of the industry to company founders who are still at the beginning of their careers.

Mentoring is temporary personal support during and/or after the start-up process.

With expert knowledge and useful snippets of advice, established entrepreneurs, high-level personnel and other experts can provide inexperienced start-up owners assistance relating to problems of business, as well as provide access to new networks.

Mentoring creates a WIN-WIN situation for both sides.

Das build! Mentoring Programm

build! Mentoring in cooperation with Austrian Senior Experts Pool

Since autumn 2019 there is build! Mentoring program together with ASEP. Through this cooperation we make the build! Startups have access to an Austria-wide mentoring network of senior experts from a wide range of industries.

Growing across industries and generations

As part of our Advanced II and Premium Programmes, we provide our founders with a mentor with experience for a period of 8 or 12 months. We use an Austria-wide network of senior experts, as well as the build! network.

Procedure and objectives

At the beginning of the program there is matching, which is essential for the success of the mentoring program. Based on the objectives and requirements of the founders, a suitable tandem partner is sought.

Mentors and mentees get to know each other for the first time at a joint kick-off event. Subsequently, topics and goals are defined for the duration, which are worked on in a regular personal exchange.

The mutual personal exchange on previously defined topics and goals is the core element of the mentoring program. In addition, workshops are held with all participants to ensure cross-mentoring.
