What is PEAK’s Mentorship Programme?
PEAK’s Mentorship Programme aims to create a pool of highly qualified professional mentors who can offer crucial insight and advice to emerging startups and businesses in Kyrgyzstan that benefit from PEAK’s business development programmes and services. Mentors will challenge their ideas and assumptions and provide help, advice and tips and further build the entrepreneur’s capacity and skills, in a space of learning and dialogue for both the mentor and mentee.
Under the Mentorship Programme, PEAK will match business participants of its business support programmes with experienced and more knowledgeable mentors from PEAK’s network who will help identify bottlenecks and navigate the companies’ next steps towards efficiency, growth and development. Mentorship sessions can be conducted as one-on-one, in groups or online (virtual) to ensure greater benefit for more people. For mentors, this is a great opportunity to give back, become a better leader, and refine own skills and networks.
The Programme will involve 4 phases over a period of 3-6 months:
- Mentoring Awareness Sessions (1 hour);
- Business Support Programme specific mentor sourcing, shortlisting, interviewing and selection (1-2 months);
