“I am looking forward to hearing about the current status of entrepreneurship locally,” she said. 

Namita Mathur, another volunteer at Basecamp, said the mentor sessions were of interest to her because it enabled her to work one-on-one with an expert to better her venture plan. 

Brianne C. Martin, founder of BCM Engineering & Consulting, “jumped into entrepreneurship three weeks ago.”

She said that Dallas Startup Week is an opportunity to network with small businesses, as well as different people and different spaces.

“I am an engineer, so everything about process and procedures is super important to me,” she said.  

Martin has been involved with a number of organizations related to diversity in engineering, including the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers. 

“I am looking forward to hearing from the corporations about what they do, and in turn, being able to sell that within my company as a consulting firm, but to the smaller medium-sized businesses,” Martin said.
