For Startups During & Beyond COVID19

18 May – 18 August

The Mentorship Marathon is a 22 on Sloane initiative aimed to support startups towards re-thinking and re-evaluating their business models. The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected all businesses both big and small and we hope that the mentorship marathon will support startups to remain agile and re-think their business goals and survival during and beyond this period.
