Coaches, Speakers & Judges
Time and time again, Coaches are described by attendees as one of the most valuable features of the weekend! The one-on-one advice given to teams can be invaluable and a key factor in their growth as a startup. Mentors themselves enjoy working with teams because it’s a chance to share their knowledge and help other aspiring entrepreneurs.
