Speed Up Buddy

Did you know that 74 out of every 100 children from academic families start university? The number of those who also successfully complete their studies is even lower - there is often a lack of family support or a supportive environment.

To promote equal opportunities in education, Speed Up Buddy was launched, a free mentoring platform for students who are the first to study in their families. Mentors who already successfully have both feet on the ground in professional life, have a similar background and/or can put themselves in the students' shoes offer free 1on1 mentoring.

They are successful experts at market-leading companies such as McKinsey, Procter & Gamble and dynamic start-ups and support students with semesters abroad, internships and jobs, application processes, getting a job and, of course, all kinds of questions about studying. The coaching can also take place completely online, so it's a great way to support students despite the Corona restrictions and at the same time counteract insecurities in difficult times. As of the beginning of November, the project already has 227 registered mentors and 117 mentees and we hope that some of you will also find a place there.
