Testimony of a mentored entrepreneur
“Having a mentor to turn to enabled me to improve my skills, to accelerate my development and to share professional experiences. Given that my mentor essentially had to face the same issues and doubts as me, he can guide me in my decision-making and at the same time save me from making costly mistakes.”
