Ever wonder what it’s like to build product in early-stage startups? Curious about how teams make product decisions?¬†What’s it like to be a solo designer or a founder?

Project Moccasin is an opportunity for creative and entrepreneurial folks to spend a day with a product, entrepreneurial or design mentor to observe how they work, where they work.

The Mentors

Mentors include designers, entrepreneurs, makers and product managers. Past mentors hailed from startups and collectives like Alphaworks and Maker’s Row, to growth-stage companies like Shapeways, Kickstarter, and Etsy.

Here’s a peek at a few of our mentors in New York and Austin:

How it Works

  1. Apply to participate. We’ll follow up to ensure we have a mentor match for you and answer questions you might have.
  2. Reserve your spot. Once we have identified a match, make your $40 payment to lock in your mentor. Early applications have the best chance of matching with the limited number of participating mentors.
  3. Pick a day. You and your mentor pick a date during March 23-April 3 to spend a day to shadow them where they work.


Project Moccasin is organized by Phoebe in NY and Brendan in Austin. Have questions? Send a message or tweet.
