Mentor Overview
Mentorís business model is unique and a contrast to a traditional agency. We focus on a small team of leaders who are also individual contributors in the areas of UX Research & Interaction Design, Visual Design & Branding, Technical Architecture & Development, Project & Account Management, and Business Development. These individuals make up the Mentor Core and we utilize our network of freelancers and agency partners to build specialized teams for our clients based on the project needs. This model gives us the ability to scale up and down while also remaining subject matter and platform agnostic. Our goal is to understand our client needs and build the right solution, and since our model is so flexible it also allows us the ability to staff entire turnkey projects, or just fill individual positions on client teams.
