Driven to take our renowned support to the next level, imec.istart set up the ‘imec.istart mentorship’ service, offering our tech start-ups a (more) structural form of mentoring by leading experts in relevant branches.

What is the imec.istart mentorship about?

The ‘imec.istart mentorship’ will unite a group of leading industry & business professionals eager to share their experienced insights & advice with one or more mentees.

The service is voluntary (i.e. non-paid, in either direction) and requires the mentor’s commitment for at least 10 hours of 1-1 sessions per year available for the start-ups, spread over the year.

The start-ups are encouraged to approach mentors pro-actively, yet match-making is moderated by imec.istart to prevent an overload of mentorship requests.
