The REC Mentoring programme
Drawing on successful experience in favour of the growth of social, responsible enterprises in Ile-de-France, REC Innovation amplifies its field of action in 2019 by launching a pro-bono mentoring scheme.
Using REC’s DNA and values, this new programme is destined for entrepreneurs concentrating on expansion who have already been identified and supported by an existing REC Innovation programme.
Thanks to the commitment of the highly-experienced volunteers, and thanks to the rigorous selection of high potential projects, the RE Mentoring Programme achieves a privileged level of individual support.
Designed to exist as a long-standing relationship, the REC Mentoring Programme aims to extend the REC Innovation network and benefit from entrepreneurs it has supported.
The REC Mentoring programme fits into the REC Innovation structure, and is aimed at accelerating and stabilising the expansion of social and responsible enterprises in Ile-de-France, using appraisal tools and support strategies made available to experts who are already successfully practicing thanks to REC Innovation.
In this respect, the REC Mentoring programme offers entrepreneurs and business creators support in the following ways:
– identifying and forecasting the expansion methods for their companies
– using the mentors’ experience to question, reassure or contest their choices
– facilitating dialogue concerning their difficulties, problems, case studies, challenges, etc.
– and generally giving necessary perspective needed to sustain the development of their company
At REC Innovation, we design the mentoring programme as a high quality, individual support package that compliments the skills that we pass on to the entrepreneurs following our programmes. We’re convinced that the mentoring must bring supported companies and groups together for everyone’s shared benefitBogdan GADENNE-FEERTCHAK
MENTOR PRO BONO
The Mentors College in 2019
The REC Mentoring programme is made possible by the voluntary commitment of participants from both public and private sectors. Managers, directors, business founders or employees at international organisations, each mentor is accompanied by a laureate entrepreneur who has been involved in a REC Innovation programme.
In addition, the mentors will collectively contribute to the continuous improvement of REC Innovation’s proposals which aim to accelerate growth.
Putting the programme into practice
The REC Mentoring programme will be implemented by an initial 12 months of support sessions.
The first session will begin on 1st January 2019 and will benefit 10 entrepreneurs.
The mentors and entrepreneurs are left to organise the modality and frequency of their meetings, and the REC Innovation team regularly monitors progress with the mentors over those 12 months.
