IDEAx is an accelerator program for New Orleans-based founders focused on creating scalable and fundable businesses. Central to the program is a curated network of global business experts available to participating founders.
Perks of the Program
In addition to critical business resources, IDEAx participants have exclusive access to the following:
- Peer Learning: A 3-day bootcamp kicks off the IDEAx program, gathering the full cohort together with alumni who share with the new founders what they learned during their time in the program and how to best leverage the weeks ahead. There will be bi-weekly cohort dinners and happy hours throughout the program to provide participants the opportunity to share experiences and learn from each other.
- Coaching: Each IDEAx founder will meet weekly with the program's dedicated Entrepreneur-in-Residence (EIR), who will help them hone in on key problem areas and action items for their business as well as navigate and prioritize The Idea Village's mentor network.
- Mentorship: Central to the development of companies going through IDEAx is surrounding them with great mentors whose experience they can learn from. The mentor network is a curated group of the best local and national business experts committed to helping founders accelerate immediate and long-term growth.
- Exposure: IDEAx culminates with a demo day – a showcase pitch to The Idea Village's network of mentors, investors, professionals, and media.
