Mentor driven capital

COURSE SUMMARY

Through mentoring, business angels offer more than just money. ‘Mentor-driven capital’ is the approach to creating value for startups by sharing the knowledge, experience and network you’ve built during your career, while also maximizing the return on your investments.

Take advantage of the first dedicated training program designed for African business professionals keen to guide Africa’s up and coming entrepreneurs to success. Angel investing is of course about providing early-stage companies with investment capital, but the expertise and network that you, as a business angel, can share with entrepreneurs is also vital to their growth and success.

The goal of this course is to boost your ability as a high-powered mentor to support entrepreneurs while learning to think and act like a savvy business angel.

 

In this unique course aspiring business angels will guide promising entrepreneurs to success while you achieve your own level of success. You will receive expert guidance, training and hands-on support. The only thing you need to invest is your valuable time, knowledge and network!
