When we first started Jolt last autumn, we had no idea how it would work out. Now, a few months later, we closed the first round of mentoring with some really great results - and a new name. Jolt has evolved and has now become Ampair. We are open for applications now and will begin the second round of mentoring in just a few weeks with more than 4 times the number of mentors and mentees compared to the first round.
Before we take that next big step, we want to look back at the first round and some of its great achievements. During the three months project phase, mentees have been working hard on the projects of their choice being guided by the field experts - their mentors. They had an opportunity to present the outcomes of their efforts during the closing celebration that marked the end of the first phase. All the presentations were super interesting and left the audience impressed with how much can be achieved during such a short period!
As we understand that getting started in tech is not trivial, we wanted to offer a special form of recognition for the best and thus asked the audience to vote for three projects they found the most captivating. Today, we are presenting you with the winners - Maria, Laurie & Max who told us a little bit about their projects, the experiences they had and why they think mentoring can make all the difference when learning a new skill.
