DUO Mentoring: Mentoring program

A One-on-One advice programme from high-profile business executives

This co-initiative with the French Trade Advisors offers the opportunity to have a mentor (business manager and experienced senior executive) who volunteers their advice and insights to French startups, entrepreneurs and SME representatives who are in the midst of expanding their business in the region.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

It is a 12-month renewable mentoring programme based on the mutual commitment of both the Mentor and Mentee aiming to foster support contingent on a strong personal relationship. 

The commitment of Mentors is strictly personal (i.e. not a part of their company’s consultancy services) and the success of the programme is based on trust, respect and confidentiality.

Mentors & Mentees commit to the following:

  • Minimum number of physical meetings (6 per year)
  • Minimum meeting time (2 to 3 hours)
  • 1 year duration (renewable one additional year, if mentor & mentee expressly wish it)
  • One interim point after 6 months, to inform FSACCI & CCE & a final report of mentoring / evaluation
  • Mentor's availability for remote exchange (email, phone, videoconferencing, etc.)
  • Strict confidentiality rules

This program does not in any way incur liability for FSACCI, CCE & of course the Mentors for whatever reason.
