The Yo Mentor App 

The Yo Mentor App is a web and mobile phone based app that avails career guidance and mentors services to youth and young entrepreneurs overriding geographical, human interaction and access challenges.  With this app, the user will be able to search for expert mentors, consultants, careers, education information and other professionals and be matched with one at a place near him/her for a meeting. The team was very enthusiastic about signing up a number of mentors to support the ever growing number of young unemployed graduates. In their pitch, the team did not clearly state what other offerings they would propose to the mentors with exception of being uploaded onto their platform.
