INTRODUCTION
We have a big gift we’d like to give to our community: a website that allows people to tap into 1001 amazing mentors in the Seattle startup scene.

My name is Seaton Gras, and I’m part of a six-person Startup Weekend EDU team that’s building a website called 1001 Mentors. It allows mentees to find mentors -- focusing on the Seattle Startup community.

There’s a burning need for mentorship whether it’s UI, programming, legal or marketing. 1001 Mentors is solving that need.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Help us meet our challenge. Everyone can serve as a mentor. Take just 1 minute and sign up at

http://bit.ly/1001mentors

Don’t worry - we will NEVER publish, show or sell your email address. Potential mentees will contact you via the system, and you can accept/decline mentor requests.

WHAT WILL I GET?

* Fame. Your name on our Thank You Page for completing the 1001 Mentors challenge.
* Fortune. If you sign up by 5 pm Sunday, you will never pay a single dime to use the service.
* Fun. Exclusive mentor-only social events.



For more details, refer to our frequently asked questions below.

Thanks for your help,

1001 Mentors Team
