Office Hours meets Happy Hour
A key component of success for many startup founders is having access and the ability to connect with mentors who have been there and done it, – to ask their questions and get feedback from experienced startup veterans. Helping to fill that need is the goal of StartupSac Happy Hour, a monthly ‘Ask Me Anything’ Q&A event for Sacramento startup founders, entrepreneurs and innovators.
A monthly informal meetup of entrepreneurs at a local bar, restaurant, or brewery where a startup veteran answers questions from other entrepreneurs. Less of a networking event and more of an informal learning event.
Provide an opportunity for early-stage entrepreneurs to learn from and gain insight & feedback from more experienced entrepreneurs, as well as to provide a supportive forum of encouragement and collaboration in the Sacramento startup community.
- Monthly meetup from 5:00pm to 7:30pm at a changing restaurant, bar, or brewery during the last week of each month.
- Each event features an established startup veteran who makes a very brief introduction about his or her background, then the remainder of the event is open to informal Q&A and discussion.
- The veteran entrepreneur will be different each month.
Criteria for Choosing Guest Entrepreneur/Innovator
The loose criteria for choosing each month’s guest entrepreneur/innovator is that entrepreneur’s startup is earning revenue and/or has obtained at least a seed level round of investment or the entrepreneur has had a successful exit.
