When people congregate at events and programs, they have the ability to meet others and make collaborative connections. While in the program, the ten entrepreneurs of Startup Life will experience fewer special opportunities to make those valuable collaborative connections, both in our community and in the national business networking space.

With so many influential people in leadership positions in the Augusta community, it would be ideal if each of us could play a role in the success of this program. The value of having a mentor to weigh in on their process and give business (and life) advice is priceless. In the process of curating and organizing the TEDxAugusta experience, we have learned that everyone has a story and we can all learn something from each other.

Aside from lending your time and expertise as a mentor, you can help the Startup Life program by donating (in-kind or outright) something from the list below. From business and innovation magazine subscriptions to washing machines, this list is inclusive of tools the Startup Life participants need to stay successful!
