Refugees and internally displaced people are vulnerable groups. They have often lost confidence in their skills, are handling difficult family and economic situations.
Five One Labs creates an environment to foster a positive spirit, new opportunities and to restore hope enabling aspiring or budding entrepreneurs to achieve their potential. Five One Labs is looking for mentors and experts to help their mentees with their ventures when their programme begins in Autumn 2018.
Project managers, founders or professionals with key experience in an industry or sector.
Ability & goodwill to share key business skills to help entrepreneurs grow their skills and knowledge.
An understanding of the hurdles and difficulties of operating in a challenging environment.
Experts are called upon if Five One labs’ entrepreneurs need specific assistance. They are part of a network of mentors. Mentors are matched with an entrepreneur for the duration of the three-month programme. They are involved in bi-weekly 1h skype interactions with their mentee. The next cohort will start in Autumn 2018. This requires deeper involvement than the expert assistance. If you are interested to help as an expert or mentor, click on "count me in".
A donation to Five One Labs goes directly to providing entrepreneurs with the training, mentorship and community they need to launch scalable business and restart their lives with dignity. For example, £600 provides a living stipend for a low-income entrepreneur for the duration of the program to pursue his or her startup full-time; £2000+ provides seed funding for high-performing entrepreneurs to launch and operate their start-ups.
