Mentor Capital Network Investor Fishbowl Events

Our Investor Fishbowl events help impact entrepreneurs experience and learn what investors look for.

Investor Fishbowls are experiential and educational for the entrepreneurs AND the audience.

The format: Entrepreneurs pitch in front of a professional investors and an audience. After a Q&A with the investors, the audience also asks questions. What really makes our Fishbowl events unique is that the investors hold what would normally be a private de-brief meeting in front of the entrepreneur and the audience. The investor debrief happens as if the entrepreneur and the audience are not there, and we hear the investors tell each other what they really thought of the presentation. 

We have hosted Investor Fishbowl events in collaboration with several impact partners!
