About Us

A little more about who we are, what we do, and why we started Mintor.


Mintor was created out of necessity. We identified that in an age of infinite information and social connections, there is a lack of access to mentorship and first-hand experiences. Mintor is building the team and platform to drive mentoring into the digital age.

We are reshaping the very image of mentorship itself and seek to create connections with meaning. If you’re interested in learning more about our work, team, and vision of the future, send us a message. We’d love to hear from you!
