Happy Customers

World-class support

MicroMentor doesn’t just provide customer support. We partner with you to ensure program success. We are fluent in small business mentoring, and will work closely with you to make the most out of the technology. Using best practices gleaned through years of experience, we’ll help you build a comprehensive programmatic strategy. At every point in the process, the MicroMentor team will be there to provide guidance, deliver support, and help you overcome obstacles—from building your launch event, to understanding your data, to developing your ongoing communications plan.

"The MicroMentor team helped us think critically, at every step, about what we needed to make a mentoring initiative take hold and be successful. From its initial pilot phase to its availability statewide, MicroMentor has continued to act as our partner in making Business Mentor NY a success."

Steve Cohen

Deputy Commissioner Empire State Development, New York
"MicroMentor is a great product. We have a lot of entrepreneurs participating and active in the program and it is exciting to know that this is working in sub-Saharan Africa. MicroMentor consistently went above and beyond building out the platform, advising us on mentorship best practices, and promoting data-driven approaches. I've been really happy with the engagement and would highly recommend Micromentor."

Renee Manorat

"With the MicroMentor platform, Hewlett Packard was able to expand its volunteer advisory program globally, enabling employees around the world to share their professional expertise to support small business owners, nonprofit organizations, and social entrepreneurs. The MicroMentor platform helped streamline program administration; allowing our staff to concentrate on strategy and outreach. The MicroMentor team has been responsive, collaborative, and provided their support in a timely manner.""

Engage your local business community

MicroMentor is also a great way to engage your own partners in the business community. Corporate employee volunteer and pro-bono programs love us because we provide a flexible, skills-based opportunity to make a big impact. Three out of four mentors tell us they find their connections very valuable, and the mentors that join through your stakeholders in the business community will discover a great and easy way to make a difference.

"An awful lot of people have helped me in my career, so I decided to give back what I have learned. The MicroMentor program is a good way to help out startup CEOs, share with them my experience, and give them some guidance so that they can build their own dreams."

Elliot Wassarman
Former CEO at ECI (the company that started and operated Match.com)

"Micromentor is a great organization. Among others, I’ve had the good fortune of working with a gentleman in Rhode Island looking to open a line of exciting modern furniture, and a young lady in Nigeria that has a value proposition for livestock feed sources that can help the whole of Africa. Few things get my creative juices flowing more than to help a young business person."

Gary Mastro
Former VP of Brand and Product Marketing at UPS

"This is a wonderful way to give back and make an impact in the community. It was so rewarding for me to be able to share my professional skills in my work here at HP and help grow a young nonprofit."

Karen Strichartz
Enterprise Services program manager at HP
