The evening will include two presentations:
(1) Presentation given by Gilles Derome, Director, Mentorat BioSuccess, titled: "The importance of mentorship"
The first years as entrepreneurs are usually the most intensive and demanding. Enterprise leaders are often divided between establishing the company’s vision and managing daily activities in research, finance, marketing, sales etc. The speed of decision and execution is constantly increasing putting more pressure on the individuals. Many of them feel isolated and the need to be assisted, to reflect on their decisions and become better as company’s leaders.
Mentorat BioSuccess network’s mission is to improve the success of Life Sciences & Health Technologies’ entrepreneurs by offering them the support of quality mentors intent on sharing their successful entrepreneurial or corporate leadership in the sector.
