Morning Mentoring is an entrepreneurial coaching program that leverages the Queen City Angels, C-Cap, and local professional advisors for the benefit of Greater Cincinnati's entrepreneurs.
This program is collaborative effort between C-Cap and Hamilton County Business Center.
C-Cap is a resource hub designed to link entrepreneurs with angel investors and the other resources necessary to create successful growth companies.
Each month, Morning Mentoring is looking for 4 companies to participate in this networking and mentoring session. The format of the event allows each of the selected companies to make up to a 5-minute overview presentation about their company. The angels and professional advisors then have the opportunity to ask clarifying questions about the company’s market, product or service, business model, stage of development, management team, etc.
Once all presentations have been completed, the companies will have the opportunity to have one-on-one mentoring sessions with a participating angel from the Queen City Angels and a knowledgeable business service professional (minimum of 45-minute sessions). Each company will rotate to visit at least 2 Queen City Angels.
The Queen City Angels are qualified investors and are actively looking to invest in or assist innovative and scaleable entrepreneurial opportunities in the Greater Cincinnati marketplace. This program has been in existence since 2005.
You do not have to be seeking early-stage capital (AKA….other people’s money) to participate in this program. Morning Mentoring is an excellent opportunity to present, network, and receive excellent feedback.
Entrepreneurs are welcome to come watch the company presentations and network at Morning Mentoring.
