Mentoring Programme for Young Founders 2016


Within the Young Founders Programme, the Westerwelle Foundation launches a mentorship programme. For one year, starting with the Young Founders Conference 2016, the Fellows will be guided and supported by German business personalities.

In addition to the conference and the alumni programme, the Young Founders 2016 get the opportunity to participate in the recently launched mentoring programme and to benefit from another means of long-term support in realizing their visions. Every Fellow will be personally guided by a mentor relevant to their sector of business giving them the chance to discuss their projects, find new solutions and gain a valuable outside perspective.

In the course of the year, the mentors will be available as contact persons and share their experience in the fields of project management, leadership and networking as well as financing and human resource management. It is our firm belief, that an external view by mentors such as Daniel Bahr, Thorsten Strauß, Harald Christ, Dörte Hirschberg or Sybille Schön will provide the Young Founders’ with fresh impetus and help them to develop new ideas, strategies and alternative solutions.
