The QM Business and Enterprise Society: society that fosters opportunities for QM students to explore their career options whilst building memorable and long-lasting relations with others. They establish valuable and significant lessons to create a community of innovators and business minded people. They not only provide guidance and insights into the business world and career perspective, but also create a diverse and inclusive environment which builds upon QM students’ initiative to reach their full potential.

Entrepreneurial Mentors: We are looking for voluntary mentors to nurture our student VCs during semester B.
Who: Experienced professionals with expertise in entrepreneurship and innovation, socially responsible and impact investment, venture capital and sectoral experts.
Time: It is expected that a mentor would spend around 1 hour per week, four weeks during semester B (Feb – April 2022).
How: You will be mentoring and coaching a small group of student investors. The teams have been given two specific tasks during semester B - 1) finding a potential student-led social venture to our investment committee towards the end of the term, 2) organizing a panel event on social entrepreneurship and impact. You will be providing guidance and feedback on how students approach their tasks. The mentoring sessions can be done either face-to-face or virtually.
