Mentorship with Alumni

ABOUT THE PROGRAM


At Entrepreneurs Academy, students are committed to work hard for the cause we all believe in – entrepreneurship. For many of our students, their time at EA was the very beginning of a bright future. Because we are incredibly proud of our Alumni, we want to highlight them here. Hopefully, you will find yourself on this wall someday, if not yet?

As a part of your membership at Entrepreneurs Academy, you have the opportunity to receive a mentor. The purpose of the Mentorship Program is to retain knowledge within this association by letting our members meet and share experiences with our EA Alumni.

If you want to participate in the Mentorship Program – apply for a mentor today! Send your CV and a short motivation why you want to be a mentee to alumni@entrepreneursacademy.se. How about a coffee with your new mentor to kick-start this amazing opportunity?

In what way has Entrepreneurs Academy contributed to where you are today?
My involvement in Entrepreneurs Academy was one of the roads that led to where I am today. It also created relationships with fantastic people. If I had not been given the opportunity to meet like-minded and innovative students during my time in Uppsala, I probably would not have been near where I am today.

Why should you get involved in Entrepreneurs Academy?
If you are dreaming of creating your own company or to work at a start-up that challenge status-quo you will most likely meet a lot of like-minded individuals from different areas of studies. In addition you will create and accomplish projects, share experiences and get to know individuals that have experience within your area of interest.

It also gave me lots of new contacts and opened doors to new working opportunities.

Why should you get involved in Entrepreneurs Academy?
Being involved in Entrepreneurs Academy parallel to your studies is a great way to develop both personally and professionally.

Markus Jones-Quartey

Founder and CEO – Page Anchor Designs AB
Uppsala

In what way has Entrepreneurs Academy contributed to where you are today?
When I first got involved in Entrepreneurs Academy, I did not have more than a curious idea about what it meant to start a business. This curiosity has now been transformed into becoming my passion, profession and greatest hobby. The main reason for this is thanks to the network of like-minded people within Entrepreneurs Academy.

Why should you get involved in Entrepreneurs Academy?
For the contacts you get. Whether you have never had any plans to run a business or already are an active entrepreneur, Entrepreneurs Academy can help you to meet people with similar interests, as well as people who can help one to take the next step.


Monica Tesanovic

Intern – PR bureau 
Stockholm & Uppsala

In what way has Entrepreneurs Academy contributed to where you are today?
Thanks to Entrepreneurs Academy I have dared to try several new things from which I did not have previous knowledge of. Almost everything is learning by doing and that you can & should always challenge yourself! Thanks to my involvement in Entrepreneurs Academy, I got offered a job as a project manager (which I have never done before) at a media and investment company that not only expanded my personal network enormously but also gave me so many tools for the future and where I am today.

Why should you get involved in Entrepreneurs Academy?
When I moved to Uppsala to study, I had decided to not get involved in any student associations since I wanted to give 110 % at school. But after listening to the speakers at The Anders Wall lecture I got inspired and felt that Entrepreneurs Academy was something that I had to be a part of! Said and done, I ended up being responsible for marketing. The main reason why you should get involved in Entrepreneurs Academy is that you will expand your network and meet a lot of inspiring and talented people. Entrepreneurs Academy really gives that little extra to a student. It is not like any other student association; it really makes a difference and it gives back more than it takes! Personally, Entrepreneurs Academy has really opened many doors for my future career.

Product Development – Double Bond Pharmaceutical International
Uppsala

In what way has Entrepreneurs Academy contributed to where you are today?
Entrepreneurs Academy has contributed to both my personal development and my career. Today I am more confident when holding a speech. In addition I have increased my knowledge within accounting and finance.

Why should you get involved in Entrepreneurs Academy?
Getting involved in Entrepreneurs Academy was one of the most fun things that I did during my studies. One thing that I like with Entrepreneurs Academy is that you receive a lot of new friends outside your own major. In addition, you get lots of new contacts within the start-up community. My advice to you is to get involved in Entrepreneurs Academy ASAP – you won’t regret it!
