Two target groups will mainly benefit: the first one being potential mentors including entrepreneurs, business owners, managers, professionals, entrepreneurial graduate students from HEIs project partners and others. And the second one being restarting women entrepreneurs in the art and creative sector or those who want to re-start their business in this sector.
We intend to provide a platform where mentors can interact with another mentor’s while being trained and strengthen their network. Simultaneously, restarting women entrepreneurs access the same platform when seeking support, so that the network becomes the project’s central point for target group interaction.
The platform’s members will be able to share material, articles, and advice. The mentees will also be able to publish their doubts, questions, opinions. We will also make visible in the mentors’ profiles the certificates they have obtained through the training courses taken (PR4) so that it is visible to the community in which areas the mentors are specifically trained. This type of certification will contribute to monitoring the viability and continuation of the project over time.
Ment-Net provides a solution to the lack of confidence and skills that women entrepreneurs in the arts and creative industry have. The platform simplifies the user’s interaction and enables women to build a larger network. The network will be a hub for restarting women entrepreneurs while also providing opportunities for exchange (mentor-mentee, mentee-mentee, mentor-mentor) and training opportunities and tools for mentors that help enhance their mentoring ability to address the unique needs of restarting women entrepreneurs.
