This guide will assist entrepreneurs in understanding the role that mentors play in the Launch League Programme.
It highlights the importance of having a mentor and the types of mentors available to the entrepreneur. It also looks at mentorship from the mentor’s perspective and highlights the importance of having a beneficial relationship with the mentor.
This guide provides practical exercises for the entrepreneur to determine how a mentor could be beneficial to them and how to make the most of their relationship.
The majority of resources on the Launch League website are published under open licence. “Open licence” means that the content has been developed for others to use. (And we really want you to use it!)
The open licence content on this website has been developed under the Creative Commons CC 4.0. This means that you can edit, adapt, rebrand and resell to partners. When you use the content, however, you do need to “attribute” the original authors of the content, and ensure that this does not appear to be an endorsement or sponsorship.
In other words, when you use the Launch League content, you should let all stakeholders (entrepreneurs, partners,
funders) know that the content was originally developed by the UK-South Africa Tech Hub and Viridian, through the Launch League initiative.
However, you must do this in a way that the attribution isn’t confused for an endorsement or sponsorship of your programme or organisation by the UK-South Africa Tech Hub, Viridian or Launch League.
To make this easy for you, you’ll see that in each of the main resources, there’s some text that attributes the original authors – so you can just leave this in!
If you’d like more information on how to use open licence content, or what the appropriate attribution is, please contact us.
