Corporate Mentoring


The Corporate Mentoring Program pairs WOBs with a team of subject matter experts from the largest and well-known corporations in Portugal over the course of a year. This relationship provides the WOBs with valuable insight to assist them in strengthening and accelerating the growth of their enterprises.

The commitment to this program is a 2 hour in person meeting per month, in addition to regular informal communications by email or telephone. In order to be eligible for the Corporate Mentoring Program a WOB must demonstrate significant growth potential and commitment to the program.

The Corporate Mentoring Program has already assisted approximately 130 WOBs work “on” rather than “in” their businesses throughout on the mainland and the Azores.
