DUO Mentoring: Mentoring program

A one-to-one advice programme from high-profile business executives


This co-initiative, along with the French Trade Advisors (Conseillers du Commerce extérieur de la France), is an opportunity to have a mentor (business manager and experienced senior executive) who provides volunteering services as advice and deep insights to French startups, entrepreneurs and SME representatives who are in the midst of expanding their business in the region.

Candidates who join the programme, benefit from their mentor’s professional experience and advice through one-to-one meeting for 12 months.

It is a 12-month renewable support based on a personal and individual relationship between Mentor and Mentee with a mutual commitment.

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