In talking with early stage entrepreneurs over the past months, one of the things I hear from that that they’d like is the ability to connect with mentors who have been there and done it, – to ask their questions and get feedback from experienced startup veterans. Next Tuesday evening, we’ll be kicking off an event with the goal to provide just such an opportunity in an informal, friendly atmosphere.

The inaugural StartupSac Happy Hour will kick off on Tuesday, January 31, 5:00pm to 7:00pm at The Golden Bear, 2326 K St, Sacramento, CA 95816, in Midtown. Our first featured entrepreneur will be Sonny Mayugba, serial entrepreneur, alum of the Launch accelerator, founder of Requested and now, Chief Marketing Officer for Waitr. You can read more about Sonny in this interview I did with him in November 2015.
