After signing on to the portal, founders & leaders get access to ambitious talent, while apprentices discover diverse businesses and gain experience in an industry they love. Both sides are able to browse, request, and choose their own opportunities. When you both submit a request and match, FLIK will send you an email to connect you both with a contract, and the apprenticeship can begin!
Through FLIK's portal, female leaders can take on helping hands as their businesses scale quickly. Apprentices train to earn skills 10 hours a week in a meaningful project under a an established leader. Apprentices can join the program even if they have another job or are in school, this is a flexible and accessible program that can be done remotely or in-person (up to mutual agreement). Founders / Leaders can take on more than one apprentice at a time if they can handle managing and mentoring them all regularly.
Each 3-month apprenticeship marks another game-changer being exposed to the entrepreneurship ecosystem. Female founders can take on more than one apprentice. Apprentices understand they are not obligated to a wage as they derive value through mentorship, training, experience, skills, exposure, and personal growth.
If you’re not a female founder, but think you’re an amazing leader in a cool space, fill out a profile and we’ll chat! You could still be a great fit for our program.
We currently have Founders & Leaders in tech, digital marketing, sports media, human resources, AI, sustainability, amongst a diverse set of other industries. Apprentices with degrees in CS, business, medical science, psychology, etc. are all signing up from universities across the world. We look forward to welcoming you into our community!
Ultimately, our mission is to increase women-led ventures and projects globally.
