While we have been working with our mentors for quite awhile, we haven’t been hosting official mentor events – until now! With a growing set of smart, successful mentors to help our entrepreneurs, we had to find a fun way to give them the opportunity to get to know us. Our first event was a panel to introduce our participating mentors and a mentor speed dating session where choice entrepreneurs got to spend 15 minutes each with four different mentors.
Throughout the event we heard tons of good advice, deep conversations around different topics and offers to “follow-up” soon. In our eyes (and those of our attendees since we surveyed them :)) it was a resounding success! We want to give a special thank you to the mentors who participated:
Ben Ramirez – World Affairs Council of Austin
Rudy Rosen – Meadow’s Center at Texas State University
David Johnston – Decentralized Applications Fund
R.C. Rondero de Mosier – MWR Legal
Steve Maysonave – 6fusion
Pete Monfre – Clarity Marketing Support
Brian Massey – Conversion Sciences
Our next event? Tech Ranch® night at the Dell Diamond! Mentors will be networking at the pre-game tailgate and joining us for a night of baseball.
