Elo Mentoring - About our virtual mentoring experts and our mission

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 Elo, 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? Elo helps you say hello to new mentoring opportunities!

Our mission

Elo’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.

Christophe Jasmin

Before being a product manager at Elo, Christophe worked his way as a web editor, web project manager, web strategist and even restaurateur (“the best mistake” of his life according to him). What motivates him on a daily basis is to find ways to enhance the platforms he manages in order to make virtual mentoring experiences as human as possible.
