Connecting industry knowledge with ambitious founders

Be a part of our community, expand your network, and help build the next generation of startups

Many incubators, accelerators, and similar organizations use the high number of mentors they have as a badge of quality.

However, most mentors are inactive because no one takes care of them. As a result, the impact they make on start-up teams is limited.

We want to do exactly the opposite. 

That is why we have designed THE NSS MENTOR EXPERIENCE, which is a unique and structured framework that provides mentors with the following benefits: 

Self-development

Grow, acquire new expertise and skills, become better mentors, professionals, and human beings.

Visibility

Get exposure, develop your personal brand.

Impact

Be helpful, make a real difference, influence, provide opportunities to share their experience, and teach others what they’ve learned.

Network

Develop new relations, meet new companies and people, expand your network in Finland and abroad.

Opportunities

Find investments and potential collaborations, become a Lead Mentor and earn extra income.

Enjoyment

Have fun, make new friends.
