    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.


    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.

    Idea is great, price is reasonable, many different options to choose from


    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.

    Allows learning through the most relevant medium


    None encountered so far

    Creates benefits for both the student and the mentor. The student learns, the mentor gets experience and the feeling of helping someone. It's difficult for many to stay away from their smart-phones... this encourages less brainless app scrolling and more learning.
