So will Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit; Steve Huffman, co-founder of travel service Hipmunk; Matt Brezina, co-founder of mobile gifting service Sincerely; and Tikhon Bernstam, co-founder of mobile development platform company Parse and social publishing site Scribd.
“We hope to provide you with a simple, valuable opportunity to get access to successful entrepreneurs that you might not have an easy way to get in touch with,” the company Exec wrote on its blog.
The founders are available from 11am to 5pm PST and you don’t have to be in SF to be able to chat for them.
