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 designer-founder?

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

The Mentors

Mentors include designer-founders, product designers and product managers from agencies and early-stage startups like Alphaworks and Jukely, to mid-sized and large companies like Shapeways and Shutterstock to name a few.

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. Application deadline is Sep. 12, 2014.
  2. Reserve your spot. Once we have identified a match, make your payment to lock in your mentor. ($25 for reservations made by Aug. 22; $35 thereafter.) Early reservations 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 Sep. 22-26 to spend a day where they work.
