Each week, Tsai CITY's expert staff and mentors hold office hours at Tsai CITY’s space (254 Elm Street). Office hours are a way for you to get one-on-one advice or feedback on ideas, learn more about our programs and resources, or talk through other things that are on your mind. Our doors are open: you don't need to have a specific idea or any particular background to come to office hours. Learn more about our mentors below — you can use their calendars to sign up for a time to meet.
