Last month was the biggest event ever with over 900 attendees, 4 bands, 15 start up booths and 8 funding mentors giving their expertise for free. You asked us for more angels, more VCs, more incubators and more investors. Thats exactly what we are giving you. This month we will have twice the amount of mentors and experts just for you.

Our Expert DOJO super mentors will all be specialists in raising money to help your business grow and you can schedule these amazing people for 10 minute time periods from 7.00pm to 8.00pm. Their names and links to their profiles will be listed in early February for you to schedule your time slot. All you have to do is click their link and request 10 minutes mentoring at the event by filling out your name, email and a little bit about yourself on the "Apply for Mentorship!" tab. We will let you know prior to the event who has got 10 minutes of uninterupted time on the evening and who has not. Even if you dont get a slot they will be walking around afterwards and we have lots of other mentors onsite to help you grow your business.
We don’t charge anything for the mentoring because information should be free.
