Working with a mentor can be a game changer if you want to start your own business. But mentoring can also help you extremely in other areas of life.
While working for a large corporation, Desiree realised how underrepresented women were in key decision-making processes. Today, she is an advocate for female empowerment and has founded her own social business: WoMentor is a mentoring platform with the goal to strengthen the visibility and participation of women in the professional world.
She will tell us about her start-up process, give us some insights on successful mentoring and how you can use mentoring in your start-up process.
Join our digital “Start-up live” event on October 19 to hear Desirees story, learn more about mentorship and ask your questions!
The event will be held in English. Of course, you are also welcome to ask questions in German.
