Each event is different, but the main theme is to encourage the connectivity between young companies and great mentors.
Depending on the theme of the event (We run Digital, Medical Device and Ocean MentorCamps) of course the event will vary but the basic format is as follows;
The selected companies will go through a five minute presentation to the assembled group of mentors and then they will be exposed to five or six mentoring sessions lasting around 40 minutes with three mentors in each session.
This is NOT a pitching session and it is all about trying to get ideas on how to grow business and get connected to experts who can help deliver that growth.
We hope you find our website interesting and we look forward to hearing from you.
MentorCamp runs Idea Validation and Investment readiness competitions around the world.
If you are a start up or a fast growing business, you know how valuable it is to be able to speak to well connected and experienced people who have been through the problems you are experiencing.
Equally, if you are an experienced entrepreneur or funder of companies, you may find it diificult to meet great companies that you could help to grow or invest in.
MentorCamp help bridge this real gap by organising events that bring together great companies with great mentors.
Our first event in Halifax, Nova Scotia, held in October 2011 was very positively received www.progressmedia.ca/article/2011/12/a-hand and we will now be rolling out many more events around the world in 2012.
Both companies and mentors are very carefully selected to ensure the events prove highly relevant and productive for all who take part.
