The Huddle

The Huddle An innovative and intense 75-minute workshop for entrepreneurs to gain valuable feedback from preeminent entrepreneurs, executives, investors, and other leaders.

For exactly 75 minutes, the participants “huddle” together to address challenges and opportunities, along with benefits and costs, related to a very focused, predetermined problem statement chosen by the company being mentored.

The problem statement can include a diverse variety of key themes and topics so long as it covers a precise, core business issue. This session also sets the foundation for enduring relationships between participants. Key sectors of focus are healthcare, life science, and technology. The goal is to help the entrepreneurs and the start-ups that are so vital to our global economy.
