Mentoring in Entrepreneurship

The mentoring in entrepreneurship is one of the most important segments of Youth Business Russia YBR programme. YBR managers have thoroughly studied mentoring experience in Scotland, Canada, India, Argentina. Boris Tkachenko, CEO of YBR and Institute of Mentoring completed trainings in international mentoring methodologies at Youth Business International (YBI) / Accenture seminar delivered by Professor John Cull in August 2008.

Currently, mentor-mentee matches are working in YBR covered regions, training seminars for mentors and mentees and other events are being carried out.

Mentees Igor Zaboev and Petr Boikov, supported by their mentor Yuri Segal were awarded Best Ecological Entrepreneur prize at YBI Entrepreneur of the Year 2012 international contest and were the winners in Young Entrepreneur nomination at EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2014 Russian contest.
