Mentors and Entrepreneurs Matching

"Matching" in IDEA App is a fun process in which you get to meet several entrepreneurs with different projects and decide who you’d prefer to work with. During two weeks you’ll have 30 minute initial meetings with several entrepreneurs, and you will eventually rank them by order of preference. We’ll then finalize who is your final “match”: the one entrepreneur you will guide through the program.

The program at a glance

The program offers a gamified and step by step experience that allows entrepreneurs to create their business plans and validate their model. Far from theory, the pedagogy pushes them to formulate their ideas and answer the tough questions.

It invites them to “get out there”, talk to people, research, and validate their ideas. As mentor, you will be there for them every week to support them by challenging assumptions and offering a fresh perspective.

Get a certificate that you’re a trained mentor!

At the end of the 4 months, you will get your personal Mentoring Certificate that certifies that you are a successfully trained mentor who provided 20+ hours of mentorship and became proficient in mentoring entrepreneurs on these topics: value proposition, competitors mapping, identification of key stakeholders, business modeling, marketing, pricing strategies, financial forecasting, impact planning, and growth strategy.
