Hustle Summit Mentor Kit

Everything you need to get ready for FindSpark's epic networking event.

The Basics
 
  • Event Timing:

    • Doors open at 4:00pm for VIP, 5:30pm for General Admission

      • Main event: 3:30pm-8:00pm

      • Mentorship Zone: 5:00pm-8:00pm

    • We ask that Mentors stay for the duration of the time that they declared themselves available.
       

    • IMPORTANT! When you arrive  at the Mentorship Zone in the balcony, check in with a Hustle Summit Fellow and they will place you in a spot and put your name on the board. When you leave the zone, check out with a Fellow so they can remove your name. That way, attendees can see who's in and who's not.

FAQs

 

Q: Do I have to be there the entire time? I can't get there by 5:15pm, stay late, etc

A: Nope! We just ask that mentors stay for a one hour time period within 5:00pm-8:00pm

 

Q: Will this be good for my personal branding? Will I get more Twitter or Instagram followers from this?

A: We can't promise followers, but we're adding our Mentors to the Hustle Summit website and we will definitely give you lots of love via social media.

 

Q: I don't quite get what I will DO as a mentor? Stand around and look pretty?

A: Well of course, you're pretty, so you'll look pretty. But really, your role as a mentor is to chat it up with attendees, share feedback on their materials (we're encouraging them to bring lots of resumes and a portfolio), make them feel comfortable with networking, and share tips on how they can move forward in their careers.

 

Q: Will these attendees expect me to give them jobs?

A: No. Attendees know that mentors are there for networking, and that our awesome companies are the ones that are definitely looking to fill roles.

 

Q: But wait, I have jobs. Can I meet people here who I can hire for internships, entry-level and mid-level roles?

A: Absolutely! If your company wants an official table and promotion as an employer, they should email biz@findspark.com and we can talk more
