- Students-entrepreneurs are supported by PEPITE 3EF (only available in French), Incubateur Descartes may mentor some of them.
Entrepreneurial or scientific mentoring is a personal, voluntary and confidential support provided by an experienced entrepreneur, or researcher, to another entrepreneur.
Based on reciprocity, the mentoring relationship develops over the long term. It helps to facilitate personal and professional transitions as well as to contribute to self-realisation. Incubateur Descartes promotes this personal and professional development mode by organising the mentoring relationship and by framing ethical rules defined according to the objectives sought.
