What is Morning Mentoring℠?

Morning Mentoring℠ is for entrepreneurs seeking investor feedback. It is a complimentary entrepreneurial coaching program that matches startups and young companies with experienced entrepreneurs (Queen City Angels) and other successful business professionals in the fields of finance, operations, marketing, etc. Helping the entrepreneur grow by removing barriers and creating solutions is the objective of this program. If you are just looking for feedback without the investor pathway – that’s fine too.

Why Get Involved?

Morning Mentoring℠ is an excellent opportunity to present, network, and receive expert feedback from successful business mentors

This long-running and proven program has helped hundreds of new companies grow and expand. Morning Mentoring is a collaborative effort between Alloy Growth Lab and Queen City Angels. You can either get involved as a mentor or a mentee – we are looking for both.

How does it work?

Morning Mentoring℠ uses a virtual format and schedules closed sessions for presenting companies and mentors

Mentee companies are selected from the pool of applicants to present on a specific Thursday in a given month. Sessions begin with the introduction of the mentors and their backgrounds. The presenting company then introduces their business in a seven-minute presentation. After the presentation, the mentors and presenting team interact for 45 minutes. At 10:00 the presenting companies leave the session and mentors discuss the different aspects of the presenting company’s business model and provide constructive feedback to be sent to the presenting company shortly after the session.

Who can participate?

Morning Mentoring℠ encourages startups and young companies with a technology focus

Potential mentees must own their business, have a strong desire to grow, and be able to discuss challenges that their business faces. One mentee company is selected weekly by Alloy Growth Lab and Queen City Angels to present at no charge.

When do sessions take place?

Morning Mentoring℠ sessions are scheduled for Thursdays at 9:00 am –10:00 and are currently in a virtual format

Please note the month and Thursday date(s) that you prefer.
