About 100 entrepreneurs and 60 mentors will participate in the 2015 Mentorcamp in Northwest Arkansas.
The week-long event, which starts today and ends on Friday, will include international and national participants.
Founded by entrepreneurial expert Permjot Valia, Mentorcamp connects promising startup communities around the world to talented mentors with the expertise and insight needed to thrive.
“This is a rare opportunity for the local community where startups, funders and mentors are gathered to share expertise, foster strategic advantage and grow entrepreneurial communities,” Valia said. “It is likely that some of the mentors will invest as they have done at every Mentorcamp.”
Mentorcamp, which is organized by Startup Junking Consulting, is designed to validate business models, prepare founders for future investment and introduce entrepreneurs to mentors who can aid in the success of their business ventures.
Utilizing their high level of expertise, the mentors’ role is to guide and act as a sounding board to the entrepreneurs’ ideas. These mentors come from all over the world, representing various industries and are the most accredited in their field.
Mentorcamp serves to advance the growth of entrepreneurial ecosystems everywhere. Twenty-two angel investors, and representatives of 24 startup companies and at least 10 venture capital funds will be attending.
