Launch36 Office Hours are scheduled meetings between Startup Entrepreneurs and Industry Veterans / Experienced Entrepreneurs to ask questions about problem(s) they face running their startup. The sessions will include elaborate questioning (asking the tough questions), brainstorming and even a bit of Whiteboarding, which will hopefully help the entrepreneur find direction.
Each session takes place in Moncton at the Launch36 workspace and is limited to a few startups per day (Each given a 30 - 45 mins Slot). Our first office hours session will be with Susan Holt, CEO of the NB Business Council tomorrow afternoon. profile:
