About Headstart Mentor:

Headstart Mentor is a hands off mentoring session for entrepreneurs, facilitated by Headstart. Our intention is to get qualifying startups coached by the industry’s best and to build a pay-it-forward culture in the startup circuit.

It is an invite-only meetup which aims to provide a structure to 4 qualifying startups to find solutions to their problems by interacting with brilliant peers and experts in their industry. A Mentor session lasts for 3 hours and is organised on specific domains (like Healthcare, EdTech etc.) or horizontals (like sales, fund raising etc.). 

There is nothing you have to pay to get mentored, but you have to make a promise - to pay it forward by mentoring younger startups when you are ready and have an opportunity.

Application shortlisting is COMPLETELY AT HEADSTART'S DISCRETION and on a best effort basis.
