The think Mentoring Program
Mentors are fundamental to think’s incubator curriculum. think mentors are subject area specialists who have experience working at start-ups or large technology companies. These mentors provide think teams with support for anything from high-level strategic advice to specific problem-solving.
All of the think teams are young start-ups with big goals for transforming the African continent through their digital technologies. But like any start-up, they need help from experts and advisors who can help them get through the roadblocks that inevitably trip up young businesses. That’s where you come in.
What We’re Really Looking For
Ideal mentors are people who have strong tech or business development skills, and who also have a sense of adventure, patience, a positive outlook, and a passion for sharing your expertise with African start-ups.
Based on our curriculum, we are looking for people who have our desired experience, and who can commit to coming to Rwanda for 1-2 weeks. We are looking for mentors who have experience in the following fields:
- Agile Developers
- Growth Hackers
- UI/UX Designers
- Business Development Experts
- Sales Professionals
- Customer Support Specialists
- Backend Developers
- Security Experts
- Product Managers
- C-Level Executives
- HR Mangers
- Operations Directors
- Founders of Growth Stage Companies
We understand that the people interested in mentoring with think are busy professionals. Therefore, we know that your time is valuable and make every attempt possible to make sure you hit the ground running when you arrive in Rwanda.
What we ask is for mentors to commit to come to Rwanda for 1-2 weeks to work directly with our teams.
In exchange we will pay for your round trip airfare and accommodations costs while you’re working with the teams. We encourage every mentor to spend a few extra days traveling in Rwanda, but those expenses will be on you.
