Mentoring Start-up Founders
Mentoring services for validation of business ideas, scaling up, investor connect, and designing disruptive business models.
Mentorvilla provides entrepreneurs and start-up founders the required resource of an expert mentor which is otherwise difficult to find and benefit for over a sustained period of time. Several “One- Off” mentoring opportunities are available but not when you want and for however long period you want. An entrepreneur’s life is extreme and erratic. Frequently, entrepreneurs and startups in nascent stage are faced with numerous questions and challenges. Against this circumstances, having a "Mentor" or a team of "Mentors" - as in our case - your business can benefit enormously from both our experience and your ideas.
Our "Mentors" are driven by the zeal to share, coach and provide guidance through their experience and build effective teams and efficient businesses.A mentor helps channelize the time and energies spent by the founder in the right direction, enabling the founder to focus on the vital few areas which will bring the maximum productivity.One of the key benefits of having a mentor is being able to say,“I have this problem and I’m struggling to deal with it. Have you come across something similar before?”
