About us

About us

It all started in 1999—we launched a mentoring project to ready young people for their careers. Over the next 20 years, that project evolved into Academos, a successful NPO and mentoring application. After seeing how our undertaking helped young people and students, we decided it was time to democratize mentoring in the job market.

With Élo, we aimed to develop an intuitive platform that makes it easy for organizations to launch a mentoring program. Today, the platform connects hundreds of professionals who want to grow in the workplace. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to flourish at their job. The professional landscape is changing. Are you? Élo helps you say hello to new mentoring opportunities!

Our mission

Élo’s mission is to simplify mentoring for mentors, mentees, organizations, and businesses alike. We democratize mentoring so that professionals from all walks of life feel more fulfilled in the workplace. Founded by Lyne Maurier, MBA, and Catherine Légaré, Ph.D., our company is proudly based in Montreal, Canada.
