Learn more Meet our mentors

Villgro Mentors are from diverse backgrounds and are experienced business leaders with at least 8-10 years of experience with proven success in their sectors. They have usually been successful entrepreneurs, innovative intrapreneurs or investors themselves.

Villgro Mentors commit to at least two hours a week with entrepreneurs; are comfortable with communicating via phone/email in addition to in-person meetings and dedicate a few days a year to visit the entrepreneur in the field.

Our mentors embody these attributes:

  • They have strong motivation and stated desire to mentor early-stage entrepreneurs
  • They are committed to support and guide the social entrepreneur
  • Actively explore and ask probing questions; listen to the entrepreneur and the business
  • They help the social entrepreneur through practical solutions that are realistic to implement and achieve
  • They have the humility to focus on the social entrepreneur; are respectful of, appreciate and value the social entrepreneur, their business and culture
  • Have a positive attitude and cheer on the social entrepreneur’s growth and work
  • They have the ability to challenge and inspire the entrepreneur and reinforce the social entrepreneur and their vision for scale and change

Villgro works with entrepreneurs who are starting out to build an innovative solution for the BoP market. Mentors typically provide strategic business guidance and support on:

  • Commercialization of product or service
  • Customer insight gathering
  • Developing customer-centric prototype
  • Customer acquisition
  • Strengthening business models
  • Route to market
  • Financial planning
  • Revenue models and unit economics
  • Fundraising

Villgro funds and incubates early-stage, innovation-based, for-profit social enterprises that have significant impact on the lives of India’s poor. Villgro incubates and supports enterprises in four key sectors – healthcare, education, agri-business and energy – though we work with exceptional enterprises in other sectors on a case-by-case basis.

Mentors are assigned enterprises after a detailed discussion with the Villgro team and short engagement with the entrepreneur. Mentors could be a guide mentor providing strategic business guidance or a sector specialist mentor who provides strategic sector expertise to the enterprise. Mentors typically receive an annual honorarium for their engagement.
