After that, the entrepreneur will be connected to a network of leading entrepreneurs and specialists, called mentors, who support the cause of Endeavor.Each company will be routed to a mentor who has the expertise to help it with the issues identified.This mentor will follow the business from October 2017 to March 2018, which is the acceleration period of the program.Collective mentoring and exclusive events will be held for those selected, to address the common challenges and promote the connection of this network of entrepreneurs.
