Become a coach and help ventures
Another way to get involved with IDEA is by becoming a Coach. The ideal candidate for a Coach is someone who has had experience with entrepreneurship or entrepreneurship, has a minimum of 1-2 years’ work experience, and is passionate about giving back to the Northeastern University community.
There are two ways to get involved as a Coach, either as a Ready Stage Coach or a Venture Coach.
Ready Stage Coaches will not have a designated venture, but rather they will work with any and all ventures that need insight mostly through weekly coaching sessions. Ventures going through the program will sign-up for Coaching sessions and you will be there to help answer questions.
Ventures Coaches have the opportunity to work with ventures that align more with their area of expertise and will have a one on one relationship with a venture. You are expected to check in regularly, and should have an ongoing, working relationship with your venture. As a Venture Coach, you will have the opportunity to dive deep into helping entrepreneurs solve problems about their business model.
