Engaging speakers have become the trademark of Podim. They dedicate a few hours of their time to mentor (co-)founders attending the event. Choose between three different formats of mentoring support. Use One-on-one Quick-Fix Mentoring Sessions to dive into your company’s pain points, like product development, legal issues, and sales, or use Group Mentoring Sessions to figure out solutions together with your peer (co-)founders, who are experiencing the same challenges. If you are not really sure what exactly your problem is, join your peer (co-)founders at Topic Deep Dives with Mentors to discuss a predefined topic to better understand the field and challenges and to identify best solutions. Attending mentoring sessions is the first step towards fixing your challenges. The best part is that the mentors will stay by your side the next time you hit a bump on your journey.
