#GetOnStage – JEME Mentorship program

What is JEME?

JEME, acronym for Junior Enterprise Milano Economia, is based in Milan, and it is the only Junior Enterprise currently active in Bocconi University. We can proudly say that we have been the first students who brought the movement in Italy back in 1988 founding the first JE of the nation. Since then, we have been offering consulting services to multinationals, start-ups and SME.  We started to organize different meetings like the Mentorship Program back in 2015: the topics of the trainings have always been related to pitch drafting, business development and business planning, and always involved a moment of feedback, too.



What is JEME Mentorship Program?

JEME Mentorship Program is not only a one-day training session on soft and hard skills necessary to any Junior Entrepreneur but also an exceptional occasion to share best practices and developing long-lasting relations between Italian JEs. The Program is founded on the fundamental idea that any JE has something unique to offer to the Italian Network. The variegated nature of our Movement makes us get to interact with people from different cities and with different cultures, even in the Italian framework. These meetings are therefore moments which stimulate the blooming of new ideas and the reinforcement of the Network. Since we think that the Network itself is just as strong as its members are, we are very committed in participating to the creation and the formation of our colleagues: the previous editions of the Mentorship Program have been extraordinarily effective in helping other Junior Enterprises grow and in guiding the development of new Junior Initiatives. Therefore, JEME thinks that collaborating with other JE and JI is the only way to grow together and to keep the network alive, and also to have great fun with awesome people!

Program of the Event

The event takes place two times a year in Milan and all the Italian Junior Enterprises, Junior Initiatives and groups are invited to participate: the next edition will take place on 22nd April 2017. The day starts with a small breakfast, just before the first training session in which participants can attend a series of different activities, that spaciate from business relations management to marketing techniques. Then, a light lunch is a served, followed by a coffee break during which the Junior Entrepreneurs have many  chances to talk, share information, build relationships and develop new ideas. During the afternoon there is time for a more practical training: usually it actually based on workshops and business cases. The day ends with an informal aperitivo, a further occasion of exchanging contacts and ideas.
