Startup Huddle is a simple way to engage entrepreneurs in communities around the world.
Each month, the Startup Huddle program offers one or two local entrepreneurs an opportunity to present their startups to a diverse audience of mentors, advisors, entrepreneurs, and most importantly, the community.
Presenters prepare a 6-minute presentation and engage in 20 minutes of feedback and questioning after they present. Entrepreneurs gain insight into possible ways they can improve their businesses, gather real-time feedback, and connect with a community that truly cares about their progress and walk away feeling like they have advanced their business. The audience also learns a great deal from the presentations. Whether this is through passively listening or deeply engaging with the entrepreneurs, there is much to learn every week from these dynamic and diverse communities.
An experiential learning opportunity, the Startup Huddle format is consistent in each location.
