Support and Community

As a hub for entrepreneurship in the region, we are in the business of connecting industry partners, talent, capital, mentors, and advisors—to drive innovation, growth, and business for our community.

The Roux Institute's entrepreneurship platform is a game-changer. Their dedication to developing the ecosystem will help us compete on a national level and make Maine more attractive to founders and investors.

Roux Institute Mentor Network

Our mentor network is a community of supporters with deep experience within the startup and corporate ecosystem who volunteers their time to help our entrepreneurs maximize their odds of success and avoid unnecessary obstacles. We welcome subject-matter-experts and those with experience starting and scaling companies to join the Roux Institute as advisors and mentors for portfolio companies across our programs.

Roux Institute Capital Network

The Roux Institute is incubating and accelerating 40-60 ventures per year. As we continue to produce top-tier startups coming out of our programs, we are building our capital network to support these companies as they grow. Gain access to the region’s top performing startups while helping grow the pool of capital available to high-growth Maine-based companies.
