Repat Start-Up Mentorship is accepting applications

Repat Start-Up Mentorship has kicked off in Yerevan yesterday. The program is aimed at assisting innovative individuals who want to make projects that would directly impact the development of Armenia.

The program will provide participants with one-on-one professional mentorship and cover their rent in a coworking space for a year. Applicants can submit the form here until March 1.

Repat Start-Up Promotions Manager Tatev Babayan has told that the program is designed for individuals who currently live abroad and for those who have lived in Armenia for no longer than three years.

The mentorship program will prioritize applicants experienced in business or public initiatives, whose activity includes but is not limited to tourism, medicine, technology, agriculture, communication, information, education, public activity, and industry.

“The selected initiatives will be given mentorship tailored to their needs. Participants and mentors will meet once a month. Once in six months, the participants will report what they have achieved in the mentioned period. The program has just begun, so we aren’t certain how many startups will have. It depends on the amount of applications,” explained Tatev Babayan.

The team of mentors includes Eric Hayrapetyan, Partner at Ernst and Young, Artur Alaverdyan, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of FAST, Diana Hovhannisyan, CEO of Digital Factory, Vahan Vardanian, Venture Partner at Buran Venture Capital, Victor Akulian, Partner at KPMG in Russia and the CIS, Olga Parakhina, Co-Founder and Development Director of ARTEZIANICA Armenia, Areg Ginosian, Co-Founder and CEO of Ginosi Apartels, Lucineh Kassarjian, CEO of Sensyan Club, and Gor Nahapetyan, President of the Alumni Board of Skolkovo Business School.
