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 5:30pm to 7:30pm at a changing restaurant, bar, or brewery.
- 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.
Upcoming StartupSac Happy Hour Events
We’re still planning our next StartupSac Happy Hour event. We’ll be pivoting slightly for the next event and looking to schedule it some time during the first wee of August and it will be a networking only event. Stay tuned for details.
