Just send us a short message that you are interested in engaging in a mentoring-relationship. Thereupon, we will contact you in order to learn more about you and your (prospective) start-up. All it takes to apply for the mentoring is your serious commitment to working on the development of your business idea or start-up and that you are starting up within the Flensburg-Sønderborg Fjord region.

Applying for and engaging in a mentoring relationship is free of charge. The mentor supports you without any direct reward/payment.

In the next step, we will look for an appropriate mentor for you. We will try to match you according to your specific needs and qualifications. If you or the mentor should not feel comfortable with the match, you both have the freedom to resign from the mentoring at any time.

Please note that even though we try to put all our efforts into finding an appropriate mentor in our network, there might be individual cases, where no mentor can be found and thus no mentoring relationship can be established.

After we found a mentor for you, we will facilitate the first meeting between you and your mentor. Here you will get to know each other. Furthermore, you will discuss the future content of the relationship. You and the mentor decide to which degree you wish to formalize your relationship with a contract and proceed with us as facilitators.

The length of a mentoring relationship typically varies between 6 and 12 months. It is up to you and your mentor to decide upon the initial time frame.

Interested? Then come and talk to us!
