What happens when you take startup office hours and combine it with Mardi Gras? StartupSac Fat Tuesday Happy Hour.
Based on the positive interest from the inaugural event in January, StartupSac Happy Hour will return on Tuesday, February 28th (Fat Tuesday) with not one founder, but two Sacramento startup cofounders ready to answer your startup, innovation, and entrepreneurial questions. February’s guest startup veterans will be Gabe Gomez & Nick Trosko, cofounders of GymHit.
Gabe and Nick are recent alums of 500 Startups Batch 19 as well as Acceleprise and are well on their way to startup stardom (check out their individual bios below). During this informal event you’ll have the chance to get tips from Gabe and Nick about getting into a world-class accelerator like 500 startups, ask about the incredible network of founders and investors that they’ve developed in the Bay Area, key lessons they’ve learned about developing financials, investor pitch decks, MVPs, raising money, or whatever startup questions you may have.
The goal of StartupSac Happy Hour is to provide an opportunity for early-stage entrepreneurs to learn and gain insight & feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, as well as to provide a supportive, informal forum of encouragement and collaboration in the Sacramento startup community.
This event is free, no host happy hour. Our host for this event will be The Red Rabbit who is graciously providing the use of their back room for the event. No need to bring Mardi Gras beads, masks or elaborate costumes, just come out to Red Rabbit, head to the back, get yourself some food and drink from the bar and join the StartupSac community.
