Gangplank Updates

Looking to reserve permanent space at Gangplank?

You’ve been to Gangplank a few times and you like what you see. If you’re thinking about setting up a more permanent base of operations, we now have a “Gangplank Space Request” form to streamline the demand. You can find the form on Gangplank’s website under the ‘Participate‘ and ‘Collaborative‘ tabs.

There is no fee to make Gangplank your base of operations. Our wifi, conference rooms and podcasting studio are at your disposal. We simply ask that you respect the space and work of fellow Gangplank members, as well as be willing to collaborate with the community.

Um….brown bags?

We want you to there! Our guests are at their best with a live audience that keeps them on their toes with lively discussion and questions.

But if you absolutely can’t make it…

Yes, we are filming them. Yes, the video will be posted to the website as soon as is possible after the talk. We also will be posting summaries of the presentations and providing information about speakers to come. If you can’t make it to the brown bags each week, best bet is to bookmark this blog.

Have a speaker suggestion? Let’s hear it!

Free Entrepreneur Mentoring at Gangplank

Office Hours @ Gangplank

Several VC’s and angel investors have open office hours at Gangplank in Chandler, AZ.

Recently ATIF took office hours and it was an overwhelming success.  We are now opening office hours for even more mentors.  Pick a 20 minute slot for these open office hours. Simply grab a slot starting on the hour, 20 minutes past, 40 minutes past etc below. You’ll first need to create a pbwiki account if you don’t already have one. Please note that all office hours slots are 20 minutes unless you’ve pre-arranged something longer with the person you’re meeting with. Please don’t claim longer spots.
