The Mentors

The partnership program involves a number of leading experts in startup development, technical areas, as well as supporting fields like marketing. The benefits of multiple mentors will help the participants to find new opportunities, improve their business models and create innovative customer solutions. The program participants will get to know our organizational environment and our business network.

The combination of personal instructions from different experts and a detailed knowledge about the banking sector will help startups to improve their business performance. To offer the participants of Elevator Lab the best possible environment, we are continuously expanding our network of mentors.
