Workbench Programming Series :: By the Hub

Tech Salon

Working with The Hub LA we have put together a three month mentorship series to help some of their new entrepreneurs be a little more fluent with development practices and terminology. The requirements for some in the program vary from needing guidance on how to best work with their developers to knowing when to hire vs. using contractors, to user acquisition, etc.

As mentors we will provide guidance and product feedback on high-level development problems like how to communicate with developers, manage timelines, or even gice second opinions on development decisions that they might be fuzzy on. The kind of things that are literally second nature to seasoned developers like us but can provide massive amounts of confusion to the uninitiated.


The founders are 6 companies (12 people total) who are Hub LA members considered as "tech for change" companies. They are looking to build companies that help people donate extra balances on gift cards to charities, or provide educational resources, etc.

General Format

Each event starts at 7pm with dinner, followed by short presentations around the topic for the given night. Each event ends with an hour of one on one time between the mentors and the founders.
