Introducing Modi Mentorship:

A bi-monthly (every two months) virtual meeting for budding entrepreneurs interested in starting or scaling their small business, hosted by the co-founder of Modi Toys, Avani Modi Sarkar. For each event, we will select a children's charity to support along with a suggested nominal donation. To register, participants simply need to email us a copy of their donation receipt to receive an invitation to the upcoming event.

Since each event addresses questions submitted by participants, no two events are truly alike. While the majority of events will be hosted by Avani, we will aim to invite guest speakers to allow participants to learn from a wide range of entrepreneurs.
