The startups competing at Ajujaht have a wide range of needs, which is why mentors play a crucial role.

Each startup entering the accelerator programme is assigned a key mentor who you meet up with on a regular basis and who thinks along with you. Most key mentors are startup founders themselves and are therefore perfectly capable of putting themselves in your shoes .

In addition to key mentors we have a lot of needs – based mentors – their role is to share their expert knowledge in specific questions, and to be present at certain larger mentor events. At these events our goal is to give you as much feedback as possible from a variety of angles. The mentors also come to your aid when yo u have a problem in a n area that they are best equipped to solve – be it a business question or a technical one.

Mentors will be added continuously and if you have a specific wish or a question, we will find you the most suitable mentor from our network!
