Our Mentor Network
Join our 10,000-person network representing 30 countries
Village Capital's mentors sit at the center of our impact.
Our accelerator programs help early-stage founders understand how to build the impact of their startups – and our mentors play a critical role in helping founders understand their strengths, address their weaknesses, and build human, social and financial capital.
Our Mentor Network is a growing community of like-minded leaders – sector experts, investors, experienced entrepreneurs, foundation leaders and more – who get the chance to connect with entrepreneurs, and with each other.
