About Power Hours at The Commons

Power Hours are weekly group sessions where entrepreneurs meet with some of the most well-respected entrepreneurs, subject-matter experts, and professionals in the region. These volunteer mentors share their entrepreneurial insights and provide feedback on startups, products or services, industries, or fledgling ideas.

It’s not a pitch event. Power Hours volunteers are here to help entrepreneurs navigate the entrepreneurial journey. It’s a chance for entrepreneurs to ask for feedback and advice that can help them meet their business challenges and goals.

Power Hours are held weekly at The Commons on Champa and are free and open to the entrepreneurial public. All participants are highly encouraged to attend the one-time Commons Community 101 to learn more about local entrepreneurial resources and best practices in building mentor relationships.

Open to the entrepreneurial public. Registration required.
