Join The Idea Village's Resource & Mentorship Network!

Are you passionate about supporting entrepreneurs in New Orleans? Do you have an expertise that startup companies need? 

The Idea Village is looking to add subject matter experts and mentors to its team of resources supporting entrepreneurs! You will have the opportunity to give back to the New Orleans startup community by work directly with the companies participating in our programs.

Expert resources have a skill set in a particular area and can provide consulting or specific services to our entrepreneurs. They can also present workshops or educational sessions about their area of expertise through our Community Content Series.

Mentors have experience as entrepreneurs and are familiar with the journey of starting a business. They provide support by sharing their experiences and opening up their networks to the entrepreneurs they are mentoring. There is no expectation of any financial support, but we do expect mentors to give their time, whether for coffee or a phone call, on about a monthly basis. Please see our full mentor description for more details.

If you have any questions about the form below, or additional information you'd like to share, please email Brenna Kane at
