I watched Paul Graham’s keynote from PyCon US 2012 where he talks about replacing universities among other things. The traditional mentor model of teaching and learning in IT industry has been on surface lately. I see a gap here in Finland between mentoring in companies and some university mentoring programs which could definitely be filled.
Instead of personal trainer you would have a personal mentor regardless of your company and education. Make a product out of mentoring.
- Put up a company for it
- Get mentors to commit
- Provide short and long term plans
