Our mentors

Mentors are not just a brain to pick or an ear to listen they see what others cannot see, and the ability to navigate a course to the start-up’s destination. Mentoring is crucial for life sciences startups considering the high stakes and regulatory and business requirements. AIC-CCMB proactively engages mentors for the right guidance and support to our resident startups. These are prominent men and women from the fields of business, science and the community who are passionate to contribute to the start-up ecosystem and start-ups in India.
