Announcing Our 2018 Mentors and Advisors

Atlanta Tech Village gives startups the best chance of success.  One of the ways we achieve that goal is through our Mentor and Advisor Program.  We strongly believe that every Founder should have at least one Mentor and every startup should have access to a myriad of Advisors. These men and women are a highly vetted community of people who have a wealth of experience, insight, and a pay it forward mentality.

Out of many, many applications, we are proud to officially announce our 2018 group of Atlanta Tech Village Mentors and Advisors!


Village Mentors are a curated group of highly esteemed, successful entrepreneurs and businessmen/women who provide a resource for Village entrepreneurs to connect with and learn from. They have “been there, done that,” and are invested in the opportunity to help the next generation of entrepreneurs succeed.  We consider it a longer term, authentic relationship that walks the startup journey alongside Founders in a blend of a personal and professional relationship.

Village Advisors are a curated group of highly esteemed, successful subject matter experts who are an amazing resource for our entrepreneurs. They are sales wizards, senior developers, lawyers, accountants, SEO experts, marketing gurus, and VCs who are committed to offering support and free advice to our community.

After meeting with one of our Advisors, our members are able to walk away with goals and direction to better serve their startup and team.
