Advisors-in-Residence

Our Advisors-in-Residence are more than casual mentors or ‘you-can-do-it’ type motivational speakers. They are highly successful people with a strong doer mind-set and they understand that the only strategy that is worth respecting is that which comes with flying colours on execution.

They are drawn from different industries and different functional domains. More than anything, they have committed to spend time with our start-up participants both on-site inside our office, on mail and phone, as well as, as per mutual convenience, physically outside our office.

They will run learning sessions for the whole batch, do intensive workshops and guide you in a way that money cannot buy. If you are particularly fortunate, some of them may even agree to be on your Advisory Board on an on-going basis.

So what motivates them to work with you? Certainly not financial incentives. They are just people who are excited about start-ups, innovations and enjoy helping entrepreneurs avoid common mistakes and setting them up to get a fighting chance to succeed.

Advisors, if you are reading this and if you would like to explore being an Advisor-in-Residence (AIRs) with us, please get in touch with us on advisors@venturenursery.com .
