Synopsis:

The BCS Entrepreneurs Specialist Group is partnering again with the pre-accelerator programme run by FFWDLondon, which is organised by City University and Accelerator Academy. The programme runs over six weeks, and BCS will provide speed-mentoring for one afternoon, in Week 4.

This Speed Mentoring provides an opportunity for Mentors and Entrepreneurs to meet. Each session generally last 20-30 minutes, allowing each Entrepreneur or team to meet with at least 10 Mentors, and vice-versa. By keeping meeting times short, both parties are able to briefly exchange backgrounds and ideas and discuss business challenges. All in all, the event provides a first step in forging valuable relationships by uniting skills, ideas and expertise.
