Want some advice on your Startup?

Startup San Diego offers Mentor Hours for San Diego entrepreneurs. To participate, the criteria for participating is that you are a founder, co-founder or principal of a San Diego-based tech startup. This is primarily for those with concerns about go to market, growth hacking, funding, or other related issues that would benefit from an intense thirty-minute session with an experienced entrepreneur who has not only faced, but solved those issues for their companies.

Be prepared to:

      • Explain what you do in 3-5 minutes MAX
      • Articulate 1 or 2 most pressing issues/hurdles/problems they could help with
      • Make the issues tangible, but NOT money — this is not a fundraising session
