 Mentoring Salons are a program to facilitate wisdom exchange between generations and experience levels. Research shows that mentorship is a key driver of professional growth and retention for rising professionals, yet it can be hard when you are starting out to get access to the people with the advice you need. Even when companies have a structured mentorship program, there is a benefit to more fluid, flexible and diverse mentoring relationships. 

Mentoring Salons originated with women founders and professionals and  have expanded to corporate programs and events as a way to create a forum for actionable advice and accelerate mentorship. 

Christina has run mentoring events for organizations such as the NFL, GoGirl Finance and The Riveter and brought them with her time at Forbes with partners such as Veuve Cliquot and Marie Claire. 

Venture Forward Series at The Riveter

Goal: Smaller events to create community and content for founders and funders. 


The Riveter x Christina Vuleta present Venture Forward, a venturing salon focused on helping entrepreneurs move forward. The event series features three funders in the startup ecosystem who answer questions from three early-stage founders across LA, Austin, and Seattle. The interactive discussion focused on how to overcome the challenges early-stage startups face in scaling their company. 

Built the program, formatted and recruited speakers, and created interactive mentor-based networking session post-panel. Series Recap and Advice!
