MIT VMS Training and 2nd Confideo General Mentors Meeting

June 2nd 2017 was a big day for the Confideo VM program in the sense of growing the mentors’ community and the pool of beneficiary ventures. The day started early with an extensive Mentors Training to 16 new mentors, delivered by Kent Summers, Trainer/Mentor at MIT VMS. The training focused on MIT VMS’s methodology of team mentoring and included mentoring mock-up sessions for a hands-on experience of the learnings prior to embarking on the mentoring journey.

The second part of the day gathered new and old mentors for a General Mentors Meeting during which five new ventures pitched the challenges being faced, concluding with the assignment of motivated mentors to assist the entrepreneurs for every venture. The five ventures are Synkers, Plottr, Jaleesa, Humn’Go, and Wango.

To date, Confideo VM gathers 37 mentors and 10 ventures, with plans to continue growing both pools of mentors and ventures for maximized program impact in the Lebanese ecosystem.
