Workshops and mentoring programs Dafna is a workshop and mentoring program for Start-ups and Growth Grant recipients in collaboration with the Technology Development Fund.Dafna is only for those who have been awarded a grant in the Sprota or Vexti category from the Technology Development Fund. Grants are applied for on the Technology Development Fund website. About prosper In the fall of 2021, the Dafna project began and was run as a pilot project. The development consisted in the fact that the Technology Development Fund entrusted KLAK to receive the beneficiaries who received Sprota in the spring distribution of the fund and follow them up for 6 months. Dafna has since grown and is now for all those who receive grants in the Sprota and Vexti category, and Dafna has developed into a 4-month growth space consisting of workshops and organized mentoring sessions. The mentoring arrangement is built in collaboration with the MIT Venture Mentoring Service and is based on the fact that each grantee receives two to four mentors with whom they meet regularly during the Dafna period. The beneficiary meets all his mentors at the same time and thus the beneficiary gets his own group of advisors. Dafna's goal is to increase the success of the companies that receive funding from the Technology Development Fund. Agenda Those who receive a start-up or growth grant from the Technology Development Fund are invited to participate in Dafna. Dafna for those who receive a grant in the spring distribution begins in September and ends in January. Workshops are the first Thursday and Friday of each month, September through December. Dafna then concludes with a presentation from all beneficiaries to the fund's board in January. Dafna for those who receive funding in the Autumn distribution begins in February and ends in June. Workshops are the first Thursday and Friday of each month, February through May. Dafna then concludes with a presentation from all beneficiaries to the fund's board in June. Between workshops, grantees are expected to work on practical projects that help them progress. Beneficiaries meet the mentors between workshops, and it is thus assumed that each beneficiary meets his or her advisory group four times.
