Experts On Site™

We offer access to Experts on topics like intellectual property, business formation, benefits, taxes, marketing, sales, funding, product design, and technology commercialization who offer their time, pro bono. See the Calendar for who is coming in and when.



The Best of the Paying it Forward Model!

Our Experts on Site™ program is where access to experts in various fields are provided, pro bono ( no charge; no strings attached) by scheduled appointments on the date that the Expert is at TechSandBox.These are one-to-one, face-to-face meetings offered by the Expert in order to help innovative companies and entrepreneurs with some of their questions and concerns.

Experts on Site is offered to leaders of startup companies (or those thinking of starting) who are Members (with priority), and to non-members as space allows.

Our calendar is the best place to see who is coming here and when. Slots are limited!  We will confirm your slot about 24 hours in advance. We typically schedule 30 minute blocks of time.

Only sign up if you plan to attend as there are limited slots and we don't want to make the Expert show up when you're not here! . If you miss an appointment, you will lose future priority. Be polite and email us to cancel if needed here.

Instructions: When you see an Expert who is of interest, sign up for a time slot by filling out this online appointment form. No walk-ins.
