The Hive Mind is a mentoring programme organised by Nordic Startup Ventures. It is open and free for all early-stage startups in the Tampere region.
Welcome to the hive mind, a place where you can access the vast knowledge of mentors and serial startup founders. It has arrived from outer space. A being of infinite knowledge. Fortunately for you, we have managed to capture some of its power in Tampere. It seems it specialises in startup knowledge! Ask your questions, and it shall answer. It shall adopt the shape of a mentor every now and then, so you may communicate with it.
The programme is for early stage startups based in Tampere, ideally with an MVP and some revenue.
It is especially useful if you are looking for product validation, product/market fit, internationalisation, and a pitch review for investors. You can solve many of your current challenges related to sales and scaling but also any other issues that affect your growth.
You will be granted 5 40-minute mentoring sessions delivered over the course of 5 months.
Nordic Startup Ventures will do the startup-mentor matchmaking based on your key challenges, so make sure to fill in the registration form properly. All NSV mentors are carefully selected and receive continuous mentoring training.
