Insj is looking for Business Coach Volunteers!

Business Coach

Insj UiO

Insj is a student organization that offers free coaching to student entrepreneurs in Oslo. Many students have ideas they want to explore, but no start-up experience. Through our coaches we help in a wide variety of subjects ranging from finance to product development and law. Insj also provides office space and an accelerator course that can help fast track students ideas.

We have so far helped more than 100 student entrepreneurs and held three batches of our accelerator program. As we are growing with a fast pace, we’re currently looking for new business coaches. If you’re craving to gain hands on experience, get insight and explore entrepreneurship and innovation this might be the thing for you.

Coaching is the main value driver of Insj. The purpose of this position is to ensure that the coaching service can be performed. Therefore, the availability of sufficient and competent business coaches is significant. They help the student projects directly by guiding them on how to develop their ideas, by providing them with necessary resources to do so and by being a sparring partner for the student. The business coach works directly under and reports to the Administrative Leader and Head of Coaches. Any activities related to the coaching process and progress of the team that he or she is assigned to coach should be reported to the Administrative Leader. While, activities related to personal development of knowledge, skills and abilities (KSAs) will be reported to the Head of coaches.
