Mentor Day Recap

The June 21st Mentor Day was outstanding. Out of the 147 company submissions, 50 startups were invited to meet one-on-one with 20 Band mentors for some honest feedback. Thanks to Ron Weissman for leading it, the volunteer mentors for giving their valuable time and advice, and our intern Kim for providing supporting logistics. This year’s Mentor Day was in partnership with the NASDAQ Entrepreneurial Center though the collaboration of our own Nicola and Sonja. As in the past, several of the startups seeking mentorship caught the mentors’ interest for investment. The most compelling companies are being invited to a special meeting on August 9th and Cocoon Cam will be presenting at the July Dinner.
