Coaches & Mentors

Coaches & Mentors

Make connections while getting professional feedback, guidance, and support. Meet with your mentor, engage with your faculty coach, and connect with the NexusLA team.

Meet with your mentor.

Mentors are a great resource for feedback about your project, discussing your field of study, and maybe even introducing you to potential employment opportunities or business partners.*

Each team will be assigned a mentor, and Nexus Louisiana will make introductions via email. From there, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the mentor to schedule an in-person or virtual meeting. Meetings can consist of phone calls, emails, video conferencing, and in-person.

*Mentors are only allowed to provide guidance and feedback, and may not directly prepare any material submitted by the team.

Engage with your faculty advisor.

Faculty Coaches are there to help your team gain a real-world perspective of the problem they’re trying to solve, navigate the vast resources available at your university, and build relationships with mentors and industry experts.

Here is a list of coaches that have already committed to participate. If you are unable to find a faculty coach, it's recommended that you contact one of the representatives at your university
