An Idea Mentorship Program

Let’s say you have an idea. Whether it’s a product, an app, a cause, or something else, this idea has been bouncing around in the back of your brain. It’s one of those things that you think, “One day, this idea will be more than an idea.” Today is that day.

59DaysOfCode is starting something big to get all of the other big ideas out of the backs of people’s brains. We’re connecting people with ideas with/to local experts who have experience bringing ideas to life. We want to walk you through the process of idea creation, research, development, and then the part where you tell people about it and make money off of it.

What is an idea, exactly?

  • A product you want to sell

  • A service you want to provide

  • An app you want to create

  • A skill you want to share

  • People you want to connect

Why learn from the best?

A lot of people have been there and done that. Why should you have to reinvent the wheel? These experts will draw from their personal experience to give you the inside scoop on how things work. The data tells us that Fresno idea-people could be more connected, both to those who are advanced in their businesses/careers and to other like-minded idea-people.

We just happen to think you can be one of those idea-people.

What’s in the program?

  • Meet with your mentor 1x/month

  • Guest Speakers 1x/month
