FAQ’s

Curated Startups will be invited to attend Gurukul Online.

There is no set commitment expected from the entrepreneurs. There will be 12 weekly sessions held during the course of the program consisting of live as well as recorded videos. The recordings of the live videos will be put on the website after the session is over. You can watch the videos as per your convenience any time during those 12 weeks.

Classroom sessions will be taught by various mentors consisting of experienced entrepreneurs, business professionals, and university instructors

There are not traditional grades, though teams are expected to be making consistent progress on their startups, and students must attend their core curriculum classes plus all elective classes to which they sign up. They are also expected to be actively present in all of their live classes which includes having their videos on and engaging in discussions.

Gurukul is about starting/working on real companies, not about an academic experience, so we expect students to take responsibility for their own progress and commit fully to the process.
