We are Mentessa: A team with uniquely diverse backgrounds. As women in tech, immigrants, high-potentials, young parents, and entrepreneurs, we have been part of numerous communities, networks, mentoring programs, and the German start-up ecosystem for 10 years now. As employees of the largest German companies we have experienced it all – lack of diversity, human bias, and insufficient collaboration!
We know: Diversity at the workplace is not just a Sustainable Development Goal, it is the future of work.
And also: In a platform economy value is created and distributed through social networks (not social media!) – live & online.
Our mission? Remove boundaries to know-how exchange for a world of work that is both high-tech and high-human.
Our idea? Simple – use the power of communities to scale the benefits of mentoring to 100% of talent:
⭐For knowledge transfer between generations
⭐For closing the skill gap through individual guidance
⭐For equal career opportunities beyond gender
⭐For a strong economy through silo-free innovation and a collaborative culture
⭐For real human connection despite work from home in hybrid teams
It's a small step for companies, but a huge one for the #futureofwork.
If you find this vision appealing and are looking to expand your portfolio with an exceptionally driven team building a customer-centered product in the growing market of transformation of work (31bn worldwide) and employee experience (20% YOY), we would love to meet you.
