Who can be a mentor?

  • Any CommUnity member who has two or more years minimum experience working in industry or academia in the energy field.
  • A person interested in engaging with a young professional to provide them with advice and guidance related to their needs or goals.



Give back to the InnoEnergy CommUnity while also connecting with a recent graduate who can provide you with perspective on today’s youth. An hour a month can make a huge difference for a mentee, especially when starting work for the first time.


You will also be able to gain access into the InnoEnergy CommUnity by being invited to exclusive events which allow you to connect with all the members of the InnoEnergy CommUnity, the leading worldwide Community of sustainable energy professionals. Events include AlumniUnite, with full expenses paid, as well as the annual mentoring event and dinner.


How it works:


  • You will be shown a series of videos from potential mentees, and you can choose the mentee you would like to work with.


  • Once you have selected a mentee, try to meet with them at least once a month for an hour. Before the meeting, the mentee will provide you with an agenda of what they would like to discuss during the meeting. Topics can range from asking for advice to getting your feedback on a business idea. 


  • Typically the mentee will have a goal that they are trying to achieve and the mentoring relationship will last a few months to a year, at which point you can choose to continue working with another mentee.


Who do I mentor?


To have an idea of who you would be mentoring, take a look at the following video of a mentee and his needs for a mentor.



Time commitment:


  • On average, one hour a month of time to meet with a mentee and provide them with supportive guidance. The meeting can take place in person or over Skype.


  • Before the meeting, the mentee will provide an agenda with a series of questions or talking points
