In order to take advantage of Everest, we require participants to give a deposit of $50. This deposit is fully refundable ONLY upon completion of the post-session survey following each session within 5 days of the last session. Given the intimate nature of Everest, and because the success of each session relies on the attendance of ventures, we use the deposit to ensure that ventures will attend when they sign up.

If you are no longer able to attend the session, we require 2 business days’ notice. Please email workshops@marsdd.com. We regret that failure to do so may result in the loss of your deposit.
