Startup Junkie Consulting will host Northwest Arkansas’s 2015 Mentorcamp for about 100 entrepreneurs this week. Roughly 60 mentors are also taking part in the week-long event in conjunction with Winrock International.

Founded by entrepreneurial expert, Permjot Valia, Mentorcamp connects promising startup communities around the world to talented mentors with the expertise and insight needed to thrive.

“This is a rare opportunity for the local community where startups, funders and mentors are gathered to share expertise, foster strategic advantage and grow entrepreneurial communities,” Valia said. “It is likely that some of the mentors will invest as they have done at every Mentorcamp.” 

Mentorcamp is designed to validate business models, prepare founders for future investment and introduce entrepreneurs to mentors that will aid in the success of business ventures across the globe.

Phyl Amerine, co-founder of Startup Junkie, said 24 startup companies, 22 angel investors and more than 10 venture capital funds will be attending this week’s event which wraps up Friday (July 24.)
