Quarles & Brady Sponsors Mentorship Program through Local Entrepreneur Training Initiative06/03/15
The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP today announced that its Phoenix Business Law Practice Group has signed on to sponsor the Vendeme tu Sueno (Pitch Us Your Dream) competition, a partnership between Seed Spot and Univision wherein entrepreneurs will compete for a chance at mentorship, office space, and capital. The program, which is part of Univision Contigo’s Hispanic Entrepreneurship Campaign, is targeted at Latino entrepreneurs and companies, but anyone can apply and compete for the chance to be one of three finalists.
Through the partnership, members of the Phoenix office’s Business Law Practice Group will serve as mentors to the 20 semi-finalists in Seed Spot’s five-day boot camp, then as mentors for the three finalists as they develop their concepts through Seed Spot’s 250-hour full-time venture program. This program, run by Seed Spot, will give the entrepreneurs access to education, networking, and mentorship to get their idea to production.
Seed Spot is a Phoenix-based incubator, focused around mentorship, networking, curriculum, and creative space. This nonprofit offers two-day, five-day, 12-week, and 14-week training programs to develop and aid budding companies and entrepreneurs.
