About Kristina Lindhe Mentorship
An entrepreneur with long, solid experience, CEO, creative director and founder of Lexington Company, Kristina Lindhe, has always had a strong commitment to young women and gender equality within the business world. The entrepreneur, together with Lexington Company, continues to promote and support women through the newly launched Kristina Lindhe Mentorship.
“There have always been driven women with great business ideas out there, now perhaps more than ever, and that's why it’s so important to inspire and encourage women to think bigger, take action and dare to invest,” Kristina says. “That’s why I’m taking the opportunity to support some of these women through a mentorship program. Believing in yourself and your idea can sometimes be a real challenge, so tips and advice from a person with similar experience can be worth its weight in gold. It’s something I wanted for myself when I started.”
The winner will receive a one-year mentorship from Kristina. She will be available to brainstorm ideas with, review the company business plan and consult the winner regarding presentations and quotes. In addition, the mentee will learn about the international business climate as well as ideas for starting a business and networking.
