We are seeking for peer mentors to lead a discussion group for this fall. The peer mentors commit to only one 2 hour discussion session where experiences are shared in a small group.

  • First year of the company (targeted at those who consider entrepreneurship as an option)
  • The Finnish company culture (targeted at those who have moved to Finland and consider entrepreneurship as an option)
  • Marketing (targeted at early stage entrepreneurs)
  • Time management (targeted at early stage entrepreneurs)
  • Sales and customer acquisition (targeted at beginner entrepreneurs)
  • Combining entrepreneurship and family life (targeted at entrepreneurs with some experience)

We offer a kick-off session to the selected peer mentors on Tuesday, 4th of September at 16:00 at NewCo Helsinki, where we guide you how to operate as a peer mentor, including networking. Kick-off sessions will be held monthly, when needed.
