Bill Aulet, superstar of entrepreneurship education concludes the CEU InnovationsLab mentor training series

November 22, 2021

During the final, 5th session of CEU iLab’s US Mentor Training Program, Bill Aulet will give participants an insight into the Disciplined Entrepreneurship method he developed, without doubt, the most well-known systematic framework for building innovative products in the world. It breaks down the necessary processes into an integrated, comprehensive, and proven 24-step framework that any industrious person can learn and apply. The method changes the way people think about starting a startup company by demystifying entrepreneurship and showing that being a great entrepreneur is not necessarily an inborn talent but a result of a learnable process.  

Bill will talk about what discipline in entrepreneurship means and why it is important, how startup mentors should approach this framework, when it should and when it should not be used and which steps definitely should not be missed.  

The session will be held as a hybrid event on November 30, starting from 5 PM CET. Participants are welcome to join in person (in this case, wearing a mask and showing up a vaccination certificate is mandatory) or online (Zoom link will be sent for registered participants via email). 

The registration is still open, RSVP on our website:

Participants who have registered for the previous sessions do not need to submit their applications again.

The Final Conclusion: Creating A Mentor Manifesto 

One of the main aims of the US Mentoring event series was to create a startup mentor community. Now it’s time to take all the talks and all the conversations as an inspiration and co-create a Mentor Manifesto, that can be used as a reference in our mentoring processes. The Mentor Manifesto could cover the role of the mentor in the ecosystem, the mentor-mentee relationship, the mentoring process, and the expectations from both the mentor and the mentee.  CEU iLab has created a Google doc, which can be edited together, by clicking here.  

The organizers of the US Mentor Training Program would like to encourage all the participants to add their thoughts and comments, as the idea is that this document will be a joint reflection of all of them on startup mentoring.
