OA Mentors are highly skilled and experienced professionals guiding and supporting the startups throughout challenging acceleration phase. However, at the OA we see mentoring also as a two-way partnership between parties with different levels of experience. It provides invaluable opportunity for both parties to learn about themselves and each other and to grow in their professional field. Very often the relationship built during the OA program continues also afterwards, as mentors frequently join the startup in an official advisory role.
Our Collaborators are all the Key Opinion Leaders and reputable tech-, business-, entrepreneurship and science experts that take part in the OA program in the roles of advisors and lecturers. They share their expertise with the OA innovators during the group workshops or individual sessions.
