Mentors may also be able to provide resources such as office space, equipment, and access to industry networks. Additionally, mentors are expected to provide their expertise and experience to help guide the startups through various challenges, such as product development, market research, and customer acquisition.
Ultimately, the types of support that mentors are expected to provide will depend on the specific program and the needs of the startups, and may vary from program to program.
