Deep well of knowledge from EIT Health made accessible via curated platform
EIT Health on 15 October 2018 announced the official launch of its Mentoring & Coaching Network (MCN), an initiative to help health and healthcare oriented start-ups find the expertise they need by connecting them with the right mentors in industry, research and academia.
The new network acts to amplify a key strength of EIT Health: the knowledge contained within its partnership of best-in-class organisations involved in Medtech, Biotech and Digital health.
The MCN actively catalogues and solicits this expertise available in Europe and provides a professional and structured mentoring framework to ensure that their knowledge has the highest potential impact. As a result, start-ups can get timely advice from the person who has the specific expertise needed.
The mentors have an opportunity to learn about, and work with, promising start-ups, and also to benefit from association with their peers, the other mentors.
To create a vast pool of MCN experts, EIT Health has integrated its individual experts, partners, institutions and corporations across Europe into one robust, curated platform of quality mentors with specific know-how and relevant track records from around the EU.
These experts provide their assistance through guided mentoring programmes, designed to ensure quality. The MCN provides:
- Matching: Ensuring the right fit between the mentees‘ need and the mentors’ specific expertise.
- Engagement: Guided by structured and proven approaches for mentoring programmes.
- An interface: Empowered by our online mentoring platform.
- Guidance: Supported by our local managers and dedicated MCN team.
Start-ups seeking expertise, and mentors who can provide expertise, are invited to register here.
