No matter how brilliant your startup idea is, there are times when some solid advice is worth its proverbial weight in gold. That’s when the new Startup Mentoring Corner concept comes in: business insights directly from the horse’s mouth, starting at Tribe Tampere on December 3rd.
Founding a startup and is weird and wonderful time where your passion becomes business. But on your to-do list there’ll be things like growing, pitching, seed funding and who knows what. To ease your pain, 6Aika – Ecosystems of Growth has started a new concept of Startup Mentoring Corner, where seasoned startup gurus share their views, also giving 1-on-1 mentoring to selected startups.
Kick off with Chris Vargas
The first Startup Mentoring Corner will be held at Tribe Tampere, Pinninkatu 47, on December 3rd with none other than Chris Vargas, an angel investor who has pretty much done it all – several times. If your goal is international growth, you are hard-pressed to find anyone with more hands-on experience on the subject. Chris will be giving general funding advice talk to all registered visitors and 1-on-1 talks with four lucky startups. Besides that, there will be excellent opportunities for networking.
Sign up to the event now and apply to 1-on-1 mentoring – it’s not every day you’ll get a chance to be advised by a real Silicon Valley veteran. There will be more Startup Mentoring Corners coming up with heavyweight speakers to be announced later, so hop in now. If your aim is to grow, you can’t beat real-world experience and hands-on advice.
