Mentorship sessions are led by our Mkono Allies, selected young professionals from various parts of the world who provide advice and knowledge to entrepreneurs. Check out our breakdown of the program.
Each entrepreneur will be matched with 2 Allies based on the relevance of the Allies' expertise and experience for the request of the entrepreneur. There will be a total of 3 separate sessions, spread over 3 to 4 months; each session is around 45 minutes.
Session 1 :
During this session, entrepreneurs share the challenges their business faces or areas they would like to improve with their assigned Allies. Following this meeting, the Allies provide a set of recommendations or ideas the entrepreneur can explore for its business.
The second session is dedicated to follow-up on the implementation of solutions provided after the first session. The Allies will continue to work with the entrepreneur to improve their business and provide relevant piece of information.
The final session is for the entrepreneur to share other concerns and challenges.
Our team is dedicated to providing every entrepreneurs support throughout the whole process. Even if they don’t have mentorship sessions scheduled, their designated Success Officer checks in on them and their business regularly. More regular communications means our team is better equipped to support entrepreneurs!
Collaboration and awareness are some of the important values we uphold at Mkono; this means that for any concerns and questions entrepreneurs might have, there will always be somebody available to help them.
