Commons on Champa Pitch Prep & Power Hours

The Commons on Champa hosts regular Power Hours Group Sessions for entrepreneurs to meet with some of the most well-respected entrepreneurs, subject-matter experts and professionals in the region. 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 others 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.
