Mentoring at CEU iLab

Mentor

Each team participating in the CEU iLab incubation is matched with a lead mentor based on the team's needs and the mentor's experience. The mentor and the team meet online or offline once a month for a 1-hour session where they discuss the team's strategic directions. This way the mentor guides the team through the entire one-year incubation process.

Skill mentor

Unlike the lead mentor who gives general and regular guidance to teams, the skill mentor is available for the teams for a one-time consultation in a specific domain, based on the skill mentor's expertise (such as sales, business planning, UX design, marketing etc.)

Earn the CEU iLab mentor badge

Our active mentors earn the CEU iLab mentor badge that they can share throughout their social media channels.
