AIM – Advancing Inclusive Mentorship

AIM – Advancing Inclusive Mentorship Programs for Higher Education Level

Despite considerable efforts in the modernization of Higher Education Institutions across Europe, there is still a gap between knowledge and skills university graduates possess and the concrete skill sets needed to start a business.

Our project AIM combines the efforts of four partners, representing four regions of Europe – North (Sweden), South Western (Portugal), South Eastern (Bulgaria) and Central (Austria). The starting point of our joint effort is supporting university and partner organisations’ staff in designing and introducing the Inclusive Entrepreneurship Mentoring Model (IEMM) for university students, equipping them with the skillset necessary to transform innovative ideas into a start-up. Quality mentorship models are based on close collaboration and mutual alignment between universities and employers. The IEMM we propose is suitable to directly and positively influence the business readiness of university graduates.
