2015 Logo


MentorMatter is an app designed to make mentoring easy, impactful, and fun. We will provide the tools you need to create meaningful, professional relationships.

There is a disconnect between the skills that graduates have and what business needs. MentorMatter connects college and university students with volunteer industry mentors to improve recruiting and increase new hire retention through mentorship.
