Through the GIST Mentor Match portal, entrepreneurs can find a mentor that best fits their needs by using the comprehensive search options in the portal. Searches can be customized based on location, industry and even the needs of a startup. Once a mentor is found, entrepreneurs can request a mentorship match. If the mentor accepts, a mentor match is made. The mentorship can then continue through the messaging service offered by the portal, or go offline to better fit the needs of mentor and mentee.
