The next stop on Wamda’s 2014 Mix N’ Mentor Roadshow, Mix N’ Mentor Beirut, will take place on September 27th, 2014. This will be the first time Wamda brings MnM’s new format to Beirut.
MnM Beirut, brought to you by a wide variety of great partners, will be a one day event connecting entrepreneurs, mentors, and industry experts to share experiences and advice in a casual, high-energy setting.
Mentors for the September event will include Hala Fadel (Fund Manager at Comgest, who has previously shared what she thinks are the three most common entrepreneurial mistakes), Oussama Ammar (cofounder at TheFamily), Walid Hanna (Managing Partner at MEVP), Walid Mansour (Managing Director at MEVP), Elie Habib (cofounder of Anghami), as well as Mix n' Mentor all-stars Herve Cuviliez, cofounder of Diwanee, and Sohrab Jahanbani, cofounder of GoNabit.
Mix N’ Mentor will allow entrepreneurs to access relevant and timely advice, specific to their startups. MnM Beirut won’t just be another panel-driven event with the usual topics and talks; it's a unique opportunity to bounce ideas off of peers and industry leaders you wouldn’t be able to interact with anywhere else.
The format for the workshop will be as follows:
Mentorship Session I: Roundtable session on business development for early stage entrepreneurs; one-on-one mentorship session for growth stage entrepreneurs.
Mentorship Session II: Roundtable session on how to build a scalable business for the early stage entrepreneurs; one-on-one mentorship session for growth stage entrepreneurs.
Roundtable Discussions: Expert-led group discussion sessions running simultaneously on different topics and industries.
