Our coaches came this afternoon to provide teams with guidance, advice, and direction. We had specialists in business development, computer science, and even medical devices, and they circulated from team to team giving them the push they need.

It can often be hard defining a direction when you’ve never started a company before, so having mentors come to provide insight is a great way for first-time entrepreneurs to get an idea of where to go and how to get there.

We are excited to have such a diverse group of mentors because our open-themed event garnered a huge variety of innovative ideas- we have groups working on projects that range from medical applications, to RV rental, to investment funds for kids. Such a wide variety of business ideas called for an equally as diverse group of coaches, and that’s exactly what we got!

Special thanks to our four mentors: Calvin Worsnup, Jim Stewart, Harm Tenhoff, and Brian Meyer!
