The Advisor & Mentor relations coordinator / volunteers help in creating an ecosystem where there are enough mentors / advisers that can help out the entrepreneurs.

D.  Fund raising & sponsorship for Indian Startups Activities

Fund raising & Sponsorship volunteer activities involves collaborating with organizations and companies in raising funds & sponsorships for organizing the events that directly benefit the startup community. Please note that main intention of the sponsorships and fund raising is intended for organizing events and meeting the minimum expenses towards entrepreneurial activities. We prefer not to charge entrepreneurs / startups who are already cash strapped to attend any of our events / activities and would rather rely on sponsorships.

E.  Media & Press Relations 

There are several events / activities that are being organized to help the startup community in various chapters and across the globe. The media & press relations volunteers help out in creating press notes and releases to the newspapers and electronic media. Journalists and volunteers who have knowledge in the media relations are ideally suited for these volunteering activities.

Often times, we need help in google search and carry on research while planning for organizing startup activities. Volunteers who can spend couple of hours and help us do the research would be of great help.

H. e-Colony (Entrepreneurship Colonies)

e-Colony is an initiative to reach out to those who are not able to participate in our regular startup activities or cannot afford to join us in cities. As part of e-Colony we wish to take that extra effort and go ourselves to their location and help them in their entrepreneurial aspirations. With this series we wish to reach out to professional, engineering, management, medical and other colleges and those remote towns and villages. This way we would like to cut the cost, travel & time but still be able to help the students & entrepreneurs. Volunteers in this category would help us achieve these goals.
