All three mentors are participating in all meetings, making the mentor meetings dynamic, innovative and extremely fruitful for you.

Structured and well-proven approach

DeepTech Mentoring is established in 2014 and developed in partnership with MIT and the MIT Venture Mentoring Service.

More than 200 companies have been through the program, where quality remains a key component. All mentor meetings are organised by the mentoring administration and facilitated by a lead mentor. Mentees are responsible for sending out agendas and recaps of of all meetings. Apart from the mentors’ unique and voluntary contribution, the meeting structure and the preparation of all meetings by all parties are key success factors.

Mentees normally participate in the program for six months. Meetings take place monthly with a predefined structure. The first meeting has a duration of two hours, the following meetings 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Mentoring - how to build a successful acceleration program

Why should you engage in mentoring?

“A fledgling venture is more likely to thrive when an idea, good business planning, and an entrepreneur are matched with proven skills and experience”

– One of the Core Principles of MIT Venture Mentoring Service

67% of startups answer “mentors” to the question “What was the most effective learning process in the acceleration program?”
