Business Mentors

MITA Startups that are guided by a business mentor stand a higher chance of success compared to others that aren't. So besides providing technical and project management mentorship ourselves based on our 25-year legacy, we make it a point to put you in t​ouch with an experienced business entrepreneur who can either provide direct mentorship, or match you with a mentor relevant to your business idea.
