About two or three times per week, we will organize an informal dinner and invite our mentors to speak on a relevant topic. These will be presented as appropriate by highly successful entrepreneurs, angel investors, legal experts, venture capitalists, investment bankers, etc. Sometimes, we’ll just organize a brief talk with Q&A by a CEO or CTO of a well known local startup. We’ll even venture out to some of these companies (such as Photobucket, Newsgator or Rally Software) and do the session there.
Typically, top executives and techies from Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Amazon, and more visit and provide early feedback and opportunities to our companies. Generally speaking, they’ll be in the early evening. All of these sessions will be very informal and give you plenty of time to interact with the mentors personally.
