Sarah Nichols a student in the program and her mentor Jeffry Brown will discuss how the concept turned from idea to product in the market in 6 months. Including investment, packaging and market acceptance.

PLUS! you'll get to sample RSVTea

Mentors. They've been there, done that and have seen it all. Yet, a woeful number of entrepreneurs start their careers without one. In an age where instant gratification is glorified, it's unsurprising that many entrepreneurs and young founders do not seek out a mentor as hard as they try to find investors. In some cases they could be one in the same. While arguments abound on why entrepreneurs do not need mentors but should only follow their own instincts and gut feelings, most successful entrepreneurs are founders who had mentors.
