I stumbled across this Medium post by @dustin which quickly evolved into a site of experienced entrepreneurs, designers, marketers, engineers, and others donating their time for "office hours" over the holidays. This includes people like @iansilber, @jmj, @uberbryn, @erondu, @shahedkhan, @broccolini, and myself. This also made me reflect on my own upbringing into Silicon Valley and all the people that were kind enough to meet with me and help (more on that here).

@afkehaya @rrhoover @dustin @iansilber @uberbryn @erondu @shahedkhan @broccolini Love this. I spoke with others who participated and their spots filled very quickly - mine did too. This speaks to the fact that demand for this platform exists. Excited to see where it goes!

@rrhoover thanks so much for posting this, and offering your time to talk to people, Ryan — really appreciate it.

Love that this is "online", seen stuff like this in the past and it's been in person only, which really limits people from outside of the "hubs". Nice work!

I love this. Glad to see the community welcome newcomers with open arms. Do you have plans for volunteer sign up? Need more female volunteers :) Also, you should connect with the Breaking Into Startups team: @ArturMeyster @timurmeyster @rubenharris.

Lots of great people who are making themselves available -- kudos! Also happy to speak to anyone about product design, strategy, and building a personal brand over some coffee in the OC.
