Cornell in Tech: Office Hours with Mentors - Sold Out
Have you started a company or are thinking about starting a company? Come network with other entrepreneurial alumni and get your questions answered from successful Cornell startup founders and investors.
This will be a group format since we've found it's helpful for founders to learn what others are going through, and gives entrepreneurs a chance to network with each other. However, it will be an intimate event to ensure everyone is able to get personalized feedback, so space is limited to just 10 people.
Pizza and beverages will be served.
Date: Thursday, July 20, 2017
Time: Doors open at 6:30 pm; mentoring session runs from 7:00-9:00 pm, though sessions often run past time
Location: Downtown Santa Monica
Parking: Santa Monica has a number of garages in the downtown area
