Excellent mentorship service for early startups
As MekaDermis we use Mentornity for quite some time. We started as 3 people team back in early 2017. Now, we are 15 people hardware startup company with our own office and successfully acquired seed funds. As the founder, I give a huge credit to all of our mentors where we meet most of them through Mentornity, who backed us with their valuable knowledge and experience.
Mentornity is an excellent platform to easily get in touch with highly respected and expert mentors. You can quickly setup a meeting with available registered mentors (which are very high in numbers depending on the institution). We are using Mentornity for approximately 2 years and never faced any bugs or problems so far. You can conduct your meetings either face-to-face or through their embedded online video chat application. Mentorship is a great deal especially for the early startups and Mentornity is an excellent platform for reaching qualified mentors.
In my honest opinion, I never faced any negative aspect of this software. To be specific, when installed and used properly, As an institution (For example an incubation center), you are good to go for generating a great hub connecting your mentors/advisors and your startups.
Simple UX & fast outcome !
I actually love it ! I'm fan of using both mobile and desktop (pretty much on mobile browser), so happy to have it. Booked it, messaged over it, followed, probably I used all features.
It has superb clear UX that you never be lost! You just choose and book your mentor's available slots in seconds, that's what most people want it. It also follows you to make your review after mentor meetings and never get you bored & disturbed.
To be honest there is no major thing to say on. However, I believe we can only sort mentors by name, not for date? Sometimes, we need just an "anybody" to discuss some details, 3rd party eye on some specific projects. At this point, we just need a mentor that available on certain day. Maybe you can think to listing page can be sort as date.
Highly recommended for mentoring programmes.
The availability of the team, from the set up to the customer success. Thank you [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] !
The platform is very easy to get use of us.
The synchronisation with the calendar and availabilities.
At first there were minor bugs, but [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and his team solved them.
The app also cannot be personalised, but it is not something that we require.
Stay Connect, Stay Together
More UX / UI, more belonging and being together.
I think there is such an opportunity by Mentornity service that you can get in touch with someone by a single sentence ¨find me on Mentornity¨
That is the first sight of doing together with someone.
It means; sounds brilliant as a community solution.
There must be more trendy functional things such as UX / UI.
But otherwise, here is the most necessary thing that; Mentornity needs to give an identity and belonging to users. Cuz it's more than a platform to stay in touch, it's a community creator.
A single high value feature
The mentoring booking feature is the single high value feature.
We went from doing it by hand, through Google Spreadsheets and then Mentornity changed our lifes.
The onboarding for "not so digital friendly" experts and mentors is really easy as well!
Mentornity is not yet compatible with other software through API / Zapier / Integromat.
We use Airtable as a CRM and we'd love to have some connections between it and Mentornity
A Great Product for Startups-Mentors-Corporates-Network
I met with Mentornity via my incubation center. It was very easy to schedule a mentor meeting and follow up on it. Even after my incubation period is over, I still check Mentornity nearly every day!
It had some bugs before. However, since last year, they improved everything and it works flawlessly for us.
Great tool for managing your startup's resources
My review about Mentornity 2019/2020
Mentornity is really useful...
It helps both mentors, mentees and the institution that makes connection between those. Everything is recorded, well connected with daily apps such as Mail and Calendar. By means of using Mentornity, I easily plan my interviews and feel no depression. Thank you guys !
Mentornity is a very useful to organize my interviews with mentees. It is also very handy tool to see the whole progress since I've started to use Mentornity as everything has been recorded.
Sometimes there may appear some cınfusion about time zones but so far nothing occurred as fatal issue.
Mentors who you need for your job is not far!
I have a startup. I need to reach sectoral players or leaders to ask questions, improve my business and search the possibility. At this point, mentors are key quides to me. This software helped me to improve my business and networking.
Actually, this software matched me with right people that give me what i look for.
I used this software many times to manage and handle a complicated mentor project. There were more than 150 people in the project and all the details were monitored by this software. I suggest strongly to everbody.
User friendly, effective for managing the processes, very easy to reach, simple but powerful, kind help desk
There would be an app for mobile phones.
Best mentorship management solution
We realized that we had a serious problem- newer generations were entering our workforce at higher and higher organizational levels. They had the smarts, but not the experience. We knew we needed to pair them up with experienced individuals they could learn the ropes from. We didn't even know there was a tech solution for it until Mentornity.
Mentornity pairs you with available mentors, creating a robust communication platform where you can both book meetings and have the meetings. This infrastructure makes connecting new employees with experienced professionals fast and easy, and it feels like we're experiencing the benefit. Our new managers seem more capable and come to upper management with fewer problems.
We've got nothing to complain about yet. The tool is well designed and well supported.
Our life became easy. Mentornity facilitated our processes:) now we can track everything and “the success starts with measuring ourself”
It took a small time to get our mentors used to it. But after 2 times use mentornity started to facilitate their lives as well.

Ease of use, instant notifications, video chat infrastructure, no protocols or procedures
Gets complicated when there are too many mentors with same expertise
It's very user friendly! When I started to use it, I never saw any confusing step. Although it is easy to use; at the same time it has lots of options like messaging, video conf, your own and the others calender, your notes and etc...
Nothing. I liked everything about it....
Software as a Network, Progress and Success
As a mentee and a co-founder of a startup as well, I take advantage of Mentornity application, one of my best tools, not only solves a great problem but also encourages to improve both myself and my business.
Pool of inspiring mentors with open access, Mentornity notification for the Mentor's avalilable time for meeting and one click to the appoinment. A splended benefit and very easy to use.
Mentornity is so handy. It provides an easy to use platform to meet great mentors and has well-oiled notification system. One of my must apps.
I am a great fan of Mentornity in general but there are some nonessential UI issues to be dealt with.
Mentornity Application Review
We provide social entrpreneurship training and colloborative project development workshops to the university students and utilize Mentornity to support and extend this work online.
This online mentoring application has all the features needed to run an online mentoring program. It is easy to learn and use.
At the time of introduction, the application was still under development and we needed some improvements and additional features along the way. However, the development team implemented those swiftly and we did not experience any interruption of the service.
Simple and effective solution
Mentornity helped me manage my mentoring sessions for two different accelerator programs. Its simple to use yet effective to the core needs of both mentors and mentees. My favourite thing about the tool is that they are always listening to the users. Improving and changing according to user needs.They are very responsive and quick to adapt to any extra features you may need.
They need to expand into many more programs and markets so that they can become a central go-to address for multi-program mentors like myself.
