Mentor Feedback Carousel Week 2021
Early-stage startups need the help of mentors who are experts in their fields’. That’s why sTARTUp Lab organizes The Mentor Feedback Carousel Week for our STARTER teams so that they can get constructive feedback and expert advice. This year we have 19 awesome mentors who have experiences with startups and want to help others. It is pleasant to see that among mentors there are also STARTER programme alumni.
Thank you very much Mentors. It’s awesome and heartwarming to see what you are doing for the Estonian startup community.
