Mentor Meet

Explore your startup idea with an experienced entrepreneur at any one of our Mentor Meet sessions! You get 10-15 minutes to ask your mentor any questions about your idea or company.

These free sessions are offered at all three SFU campuses and are open to the entire SFU community (students, staff, faculty, and recent alumni). Please see the schedule for dates and locations.
