the basics

due diligence

what we like

  • ๐Ÿ—ฃ personalized guidance: itโ€™s difficult to find go-to resources for decisions like changing careers, asking for a promotion, and starting a business
  • ๐Ÿง  career/mental health: mental health struggles in the workplace are increasing 
    • coaching and resources allow individuals to be proactive and reactive to their career wellness
  • we could all use a mentor: Mento is making interpersonal career guidance accessible
    • 76% of people claim having a mentor is important, yet only 37% of people have mentors 

potential risks

  • catering to a large audience: Mento must target people at all stages of employment
    • whether theyโ€™re between jobs, out of work, or working full-time
  • B2C vs. B2B: while itโ€™s great that anyone can sign up for the product, the real money comes from enterprise customers
  • ๐Ÿ“ˆscaling: the company hires executive coaches and experienced professionals as mentors
    • finding quality coaches is expensive, timely, and limited in supply
