One of the biggest problems an early stage startup faces is the direction and control over their action.
As an early starter, one thinks of doing everything he/she possibly can and ultimately falls down the radar of vision.
This is where mentorship by experts comes into play, a way to direct people/startups through a set vision with efficient usage of resources available onboard.
Let us introduce an online platform called Startupmentor founded by a Girija Nair. A Pune Based Platform helps early stage startups to bridge the gap between their potential customers and product/service, helps them connect to investors and also helps putting investment into right areas for business.

With a zeal to mentor and help startups in their customer acquisition strategies, Startupmentor started off by approaching small units/enterprises in urban areas with no assistance/knowledge of marketing. Helping them paved the way for them to contact other startups and help many more towards their vision.
It was purely formed to help startups get a customer acquisition strategy by using good HR policies ( as employees and not owners have direct relationship with majority of the customers), and digital marketing techniques to give 2x of the ROI.
The Whole Process starts when Startupmentor acquires client from social media and the client’s idea is validated by industry experts. Once the validation happens, there are certain rounds where one has to pitch about their operational plan and execution methods.
The Startupmentor is completely bootstrapped and is looking to set up a virtual assistance center for 24×7 assistance to startups, the revenue model it works on is by taking equity in early stage venturs and equity plus retainer fee in medium sized ventures.
StartupMentor is now mentoring Clients from E-Commerce, Real Estate, Manufacturing and lots of Educational Startups.
