Making Mentorship Possible at Scale with Jason Edmonds

By Kelly Barner | May 15, 2024

Mentors have the opportunity to provide valuable, trusted advice to the individuals they work with, but those relationships are often formed haphazardly. One team of entrepreneurs is working to pair ascending college students with recent graduates who can mentor them through the college selection process. Pairing them effectively requires a lot of data, and more empathy, but it is well worth the effort.

In this episode of The Sourcing Hero podcast, Host Kelly Barner welcomes Jason Edmonds. Jason is the Co-Founder & COO at Mentee and 2023 Venture for America Fellow. He’s a lifelong learner passionate about operational systems and product development. He’s a startup enthusiast that seeks to revolutionize the college admissions industry with efficient, impactful solutions.


In this interview, Jason is open about his experience as an entrepreneur and professional relationship builder:

  • How he turned a ‘fun’ summer project into a tech based startup
  • The most empowering and the most challenging parts about being an entrepreneur
  • The approach he uses to balance creativity and brainstorming with sustained operational growth
