* The Mentor Club is the new mentoring relationship format within the Mentoring Program of Skolkovo Foundation. 

The Mentor club offers face-to-face communication opportunities in an informal atmosphere. The Skolkovo Mentoring Program is based on the principle of confidentiality: the meeting format between the Mentor and his or her Protege presupposes no audio or video recording.
