How IV Mentorship works:

Time, Talent, Treasure
We partner with a national network of mentors and subject-matter experts who donate their time, talents, and treasure to connect with entrepreneurs in our community.

Subject-Matter Experts
We look for skilled and experienced mentors with significant and verifiable success as entrepreneurs, technologists, corporate executives, investment professionals, and advisors.

We offer a comprehensive mentoring program to engage at multiple levels. Whether you are passionate about meeting weekly with our fellows or occasionally according to your schedule, we provide an avenue for you.

Sign up to be considered for upcoming Mentorship opportunities. Note: Our Mentors are highly vetted and must be mission-aligned, completion of the mentor application does not guarantee the opportunity to mentor.
