This week will see the launch of the second Annual Mentoring Program for Female Entrepreneurs. Just like last year's matches, a number of experienced female entrepreneurs will be matched with already selected start-up entrepreneurs, who will assist them in getting things done. If you want to be a part of the launch event on December 3rd, you can buy a ticket with the TheNextWomen discount.

Once the couple is matched objectives are set by the mentoring team. At the end of the program the most successful partnership will be chosen.

Among the mentors are the following female internet heroes: Polly Gowers of Everyclick, who was successful with the Aspire Fund and Andrea Cockerton of Mudhut Communications, one of The NextWomen's experts.

As a change from conventional mentoring, one nominated entrepreneur will be mentored by a young social media expert from the Generation Y, Jenny Lau, community manager of Freshnetworks.

Applications to be part of the Mentor Program are closed, but tickets to the launch event, with speaker Charlie Osmond, UK Young Entrepreneur of the Year are still for sale. For further enquiries into mentoring, please contact TheNextWomen.
