If mentor meetings are the brain of Edge X, the weekly dinners are its heart. Each Tuesday evening, all the Edge X teams meet up. We break bread, talk shop, goof off. Most importantly, every team gets everyone else's input on how things are going.
To be clear, it doesn't matter if you're a rookie founder or you've started several companies before—if you're in Edge X, your input is valuable. Every team will enter Edge X with different challenges before them, and that's intentional. Discussion works better when participants are diverse.
Every so often, we'll also switch it up with field trips to Northwestern
, investor visits, group workshops, and other fun stuff.
