Mentors Mentoring

This month The B!G Idea house is buzzing. Pitches have been submitted from our students across Ireland and we have 101 top creative professionals lined up to mentor each one.

The mentors are reviewing the student pitches on our bespoke mentoring platform that allows a blind peer reviewed commentary. Mentors can see each other’s feedback making sure there is lots of room for each unique perspective. 

The professionals come from all over Ireland and include Dermot Bannon, Lorna Ross, Diarmuid Gavin, Roisin Lafferty, to name but a few. These superstar mentors will offer their professional expertise and advice to our students and help to bring their projects to the next level.

“First crack at mentoring some amazing projects from teams today. Amazing ideas from some brilliant young minds. Can't wait to see more!”

Dr Colin Kehoe, CEO Rapid Foundation

Our students are in the fortunate position of having mentors who have used creativity to craft a career for themselves and have used initiative and imagination to progress. Our mega mentors are from all industries and from all corners of Ireland; we even have Irish mentors based in New York and Australia participating!

And it’s not just our students who will gain from the guidance of the mentors; our teachers will have the opportunity to experience an industry perspective on their student’s projects, they will gain valuable guidance from the industry gurus and will have this added support to help the students continue with their B!G Ideas.
