AIC NITTE mentors empower startups and the ecosystem by providing mentorship in domains of their expertise, including market research, investment-readiness, designing business models, product development, team building, brand building, Go-to-Market strategy, acceleration, and scaling of a startup. Join our esteemed pool of mentors to extend your expertise as a service to build your personal brand, be recognized as a sector-specific expert, and get connected with the ecosystem, peers, and leaders.
Apart from the startup engagements, mentors will also work with the program managers of Lab32, T-Angel, Trestle, etc., to design better outcomes for the up and coming cohorts.
Mentor Engagement is crucial to build a stronger community through ideas and expertise stemming from a rich industry experience. It helps nurture and sustain a vibrant, dynamic, and flourishing innovation ecosystem.
Mentors will be engaged on an as-needed basis and as much as possible based on their availability and interests. Mentors also have opportunities to represent AIC NITTE as speakers, panelists, judges at community events, AIC NITTE events, and partner events, including WeHub, TSIC, etc.
The mentoring relationship, acting either as a mentor or a mentee, may present you with a number of issues or dilemmas. Often, there are no easy or obvious solutions and there may be no clear-cut sense of ‘right’ or ‘wrong’.
These simple guidelines highlight a set of behaviors that might impact the mentoring relationship or, indeed, when using mentoring/coaching techniques in other situations.
