Do you want to play a bigger role and make a tangible difference in Nigeria’s exciting startup ecosystem?

Then, consider becoming a mentor inVC4A Mentor-Driven Capital Program.

‘Mentor-driven capital’ is one of VC4A’s approaches of creating value for startup ecosystems around the world. It’s about finding and supporting motivated and experienced mentors – like you –  to share your knowledge, experience and network that you’ve acquired over your career with promising entrepreneurs. As you support your mentee on his/her entrepreneurial journey, you get keen insights into the local startup ecosystem and, hone your own mentoring, business & leadership skills.

The goal of this program is to boost your ability as a high-powered mentor through the Mentor-Driven Capital framework they have developed. You and the selected fellow business leaders will receive expert guidance, training, and hands-on support around mentoring, and join interactive sessions on topics like corporate partnership building and angel investing.

The program is open to a maximum of 20 aspiring business mentors in Nigeria, or to those who have strong ties with – and interest in – Nigeria. The only thing you need to invest during the approximately 4-month program is your valuable time, knowledge, and network!
