It's fantastic to have a mentor that's easily accessible to keep me accountable on my projects. I have nothing to say but great things.Cons:
None really. It'd be great if students could collaborate with other students doing similar projects.
I've been an Openmind mentee for almost 6 months now and it's been an awesome experience. I highly recommend and it's been worth every dollar I've spent. I've learned more than I could ever have alone.Kai Kuroda has used this product for one year.
Idea is great, price is reasonable, many different options to choose fromCons:
Mentors don't seem to have an accountability in terms of response time, platform is too basic and doesn't have account mgmt or billing
I used the product for close to a month. The idea is brilliant and the support is quick to react.
In my case, the mentor wouldn't respond often. When I asked for my subscription to cancel, it was cancelled immediately (even though I paid for until end of the month) and no refunds were given because "as we've already paid your mentor for the first month". I think mentors lack incentive to perform well.
I am still a fan of the platform and I think with some modification it could become much better.Amin has used this product for one month.
