IdeaMensch is a crowdsourced interview platform for entrepreneurs, makers, and doers. Our goal is to make it easy for people to get some publicity for their idea.

We have conducted over  3,000 interviews with people ranging from Daniel Pink, Seth Godin, Nancy Brinker and Gary Vaynerchuk all the way to the world’s coolest pig farmer.

Our purpose is to inspire action through the curation of our daily interviews, content, and community. Real entrepreneurs provide all of our content through our daily interviews. Here is how to do an interview.

  • Bringing ideas to life is good for humanity.
  • The best ideas can come from anywhere.
  • Win/win/win situations make the world go round.
  • Entrepreneurial sustainability beats short-term profits.
  • Shipping an idea is more important than perfecting it.

You won’t see ads on our site. We don’t believe that advertising is particularly valuable, for advertiser or audience.

To keep IdeaMensch feasible and sustainable, we allow people who submit interviews to expedite their publish date. Every day, we get dozens of interviews but only post a few. So there tends to be a wait for interviews to go live. If you want to skip the line, it’s $20 for entrepreneurs and $40 for people submitting on behalf of others. It’s a model that has served us and our supporters for many years.

IdeaMensch is headquartered in Missoula, Montana and run by Mario, Carlyn, and Anand.
