Reverie Coffee Roasters Owner Andrew Gough talks about the value of the e2e program's 'hack nights' and what he's learned from some of his mentors.
THE VALUE OF HACK NIGHTS
Hack nights are great for getting feedback from valuable mentors. The goal is to crowdsource answers from these mentors for some of our more-pressing business questions.
Here's a short video on the topic of hack nights I shot between sessions at e2e:
At a hack night, each person provides a different perspective, and you can often find new personal relationships. I truly believe people want to help, and they become more vested in your success the more you ask for advice. The feedback I've received so far has been very influential on the decisions I’m making as I move forward through the e2e Accelerator program.
Teresa Wilkerson, Asst. Dean of Transfer & Adult Studies at Newman University, has been a real champ for my business and the need to improve on my pitch. She sat in on an e2e conversation about pitching, and critiqued our first Pitch Friday event. We’ve also met privately on two occasions. The more we chat about my business plans, the closer I get to finding the pitch that is best for me.
