Different mentors will show up every night to the VCPhx Mentor Corner. Come by with your ask and see if someone is there and able to help. Mentors manage the timing and availability on-site, no-preregistration necessary. If no-one there fits the bill, try again the following week!

This is a free-for-all, and everyone is welcome, however, please note that Venture Cafe Phoenix is an inclusive environment, we encourage everyone to be kind and no hard sales! Mentors are welcome to bring business cards to network with. Please no additional marketing materials.

We will rope off a section of the lobby lounge to become the Mentor Corner. Arrive at 5pm to get checked in and find a seat in the lounge.
