What is the format?

Its divided into three sessions of two and half hours each with interactive sessions, case studies and handy tools provided for each participant.

Considering that the mentors are an experienced lot, how can you train them?

Firstly this is not a training session, its a facilitation session where various nuances, inputs and course material is shared for experts to become even better mentors since mentoring startups and founders is not a cakewalk. Even if someone is an experienced, GM, VP, CXO , Angel Investor or Startup mentor , this short course could help structure and refresh the roadmap even for an experienced practitioner. This course has been created as a good balance between a first time mentor and a veteran. Importantly a lot of service providers keen to offer services to Startups are unaware of the landscape anf founders lingo and find it difficult to do business with Startups. This course could prove to be an awesome primer for such firms and proprietary units as well.
