Fireside chat with Janice Omadeke
Janice Omadeke
Founder and CEO, The Mentor Method

Janice Omadeke, CoFounder & CEOThe Mentor Method, will be speaking to us about the founding story of her company. The Mentor Method is an enterprise platform helping companies keep and develop their diverse talent through mentorship. Using a double-blind algorithm, The Mentor Method is closing the opportunity equity gap in the workplace. Janice will talk about the pivots they went through to arrive at problem-solution fit and product-market fit to raise over $1 million to further their mission.

This talk is part of our “Inside the Entrepreneurial Classroom at Tufts” series where we open up guest speaker segments of our undergraduate entrepreneurship courses to the public. Jonathan will be speaking to the ENT101.03 Entrepreneurship and Business Planning Cohort for Fall 2021.

Where are they now?

Janice spoke to our Tufts students and alumni in late 2021. Less than a year later, in September 2022, the Mentor Method had a successful exit –
announcing on September 21, 2022, that The Mentor Method is being acquired by a New York company run by one of her heroes: Tiffany Dufu, founder and CEO of women’s training organization The Cru.

In October 2022, Janice was honored as one of the 100 Most Influential Women by Entrepreneur Magazine.
