Our call for business creation coaches and experts is now open
One of the cornerstones of our programme for start-ups consists in providing them with the best support and guidance. Because launching a start-up and growing it involves big challenges and the guidance of an experienced coach is key to overcome the obstacles that will appear along the way.
EIT InnoEnergy is creating a pool of experienced business coaches and experts, to mentor our start-ups across our offices in Europe.
What type of skills are we looking for?
We are interested in a wide range of skill sets and expertise, because we support start-ups at different stages of development: pre-seed, early stage and growth.
Our pool of coaches will gather the best European experts in:
- start-up development: setting up a team, working with business models, dealing with clash-flow, coping with uncertainty
- knowledge of energy markets and connections to help our start-ups sell
- start-up finance and fundraising
- marketing and sales
Are you an expert in any of these domains? We are looking forward to hearing from you!
Being part of the pool of mentors, coaches and experts of InnoEnergy, will give you access to a network of more of 400 partners. In addition you will have the chance to work with high-potential start-ups that are developing unique innovations in the field of energy.
How does it work?
Our call is open continuously, there is no deadline. Once you submit your application, we will check if your profile matches our needs and get back to you within four weeks.
If it is positive, you will enter automatically our pool of coaches. Whenever one of our start-ups has a need, our team will select among the pool the coach with the most appropriate expertise and availability.
InnoEnergy coaches work on an assignment basis. Applying as a coach means that you have some availability to get involved with us (the minimum requirement is one day per month, but some missions can be more time intensive). It also implies that you can invoice us for your services.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to the InnoEnergy Business Creation team!
