What does it take to become a mentor?

Helping mentees learn and grow in AI will take up only one hour a week of your time. Are you willing and able to spend more time on our program? Feel free to let us know. Read our blog to learn more about the benefits of being a mentor.

The program

To ensure the best possible experience both for mentors and mentees we carefully curate the program. This means we select and match mentors and mentees using various criteria. To ensure a successful start, we onboard our participants and provide them with ongoing support (feedback sessions, online check-ins) throughout the program.

The program will run from September 2023 to January 2024.
