The Electropreneur Park proposes to have a two tier mentorship available that will range from round the clock tactical managerial guidance to having motivational leadership interactions with some of the global industry champions.

Tier 1 Mentorship:  This will be offered by the Electropreneur Park Director/Manager.  At this stage the fundamental managerial and project management skills of the incubatees will be pruned to increase their efficiencies, and bring in focused and directionalised application of efforts to reduce wastages and encourage time bound results.

Besides, the Park Director / Manager will also guide the incubatees about the role of various government and other organisations that they might need to deal with from time to time.

ThePark Director/ Manager will also ensure that industry leaders are called regularly to impart various skills to the entrepreneurs. The expert sessions will enable the incubatees to address numerous challenges pertaining to value proposition, product strategy, go-to-market-strategy, competitiveness, resource management, etc. These sessions will also impart requisite soft skill sets including team building, public speaking, presentation skills, business communications, etc.

Tier 2 Mentorship:  This level of mentorship will be as of a techno-business guide.  The mentor assigned to an incubatee for this purpose will be closely associated with each of them with highest level of personal attention to detail.  The mentor will guide the incubatee about the technological aspects of the product / IP that is being attempted and also mentor on the aspects of keeping the efforts focused at making the product / IP commercially viable so that it certainly results in a commercial venture.

The mentor at this level will also guide about how to make the project appealing to secure investments from Venture Capitalists and/or other such funding partners.
