Saxon Mentoring Network

Exchange experience as a young or well established entrepreneur.

Saxon Mentoring Network

For young and established entrepreneurs it is important and of great value to exchange experiences and relevant topics with other entrepreneurs. A conversation at eye level outside of one's own "known" field is always a great advantage! The search for the right contact person is often difficult. And this is exactly where the mentoring network can help!

Our definition of "mentoring"

Mentoring is the passing on of personal (life) experiences without any claim to general validity. Mentoring can contain professional and reflective elements, but it is not a specific and exclusive professional consultation. Mentors are not trained coaches or trainers - they are available with their own convictions and experiences. The focus is rather on topics that are not short-term, day-to-day construction sites, but serve the long-term development of the company or support strategic objectives. The focus is also on the targeted establishment of contacts with established networks or associations and how one can benefit from successful cooperation in such organizations.

Together with regional core teams in Chemnitz, Dresden, Leipzig, Upper Lusatia and South-West Saxony, we match you with the ideal mentor. The network teams realize the communication with the mentors and mentees as well as multipliers on site and act as mediators and drivers of the network.
