SkyTeams Meet & Greet Advisors
A few weeks after welcoming our Fall 2017 Cohort of startups, SkyDeck hosted two SkyAdvisor Meet and Greet events. The Meet and Greets featured a speed-dating format where teams were given the chance to introduce their ideas to an experienced group of advisors. We had a fantastic turnout of both advisors and teams eager to get to know one another.
With this quick pitch style, SkyTeams are able to quickly get feedback and discuss pressing challenges with a variety of qualified advisors. Teams and advisors who connect at the Meet and Greet events can also follow up at office hours. Office hours are designed for a more engaging discussion period where entrepreneurs can get more specialized attention and are held regularly throughout the six-month program.
Our ultimate goal for the Meet and Greet is to give the startups the exposure they need to begin expanding their network and get the resources they need to make their goal more achievable. Executive Director Caroline Winnett says, “connecting our startups with our Advisors face to face at the start of the cohort really drives interaction within our community.” We appreciate our SkyAdvisors for their time and in-depth interest in fostering relationships with our teams.
