After the workshop week, two follow up meetings or Skype talks are planned to take place, to give the mentee an opportunity to check in with her mentor and ask for further advice, from an adjusted perspective because of further developments of the project, that took place after the workshop.
The long time span is required in order to give the participants enough time to develop their projects as well as their careers and take them to the next level.
From our experience, mentees often stay in contact with their mentors much longer than scheduled and expand the ProPro relationship into a business relationship, a friendship or both.
To foster this effect, we limit the number of mentees per mentor to two.
These meetings should be initiated by the participants and will be coordinated by the ProPro team. If requested we are also planning to organise meetings at major festivals.
