Current MESA Mentees
Companies that are actively under MESA Group mentorship are referred to as “portfolio companies” in keeping with our Intellectual Capital model. Our primary focus is on emerging software companies who have a commercially available product and have demonstrated a repeatable sales model. Each portfolio company candidate is carefully screened and evaluated by the mentor team and, if approved, is assigned a sponsor mentor to work closely with the organization.
If you’re interested in learning more about MESA and how to become a portfolio company, please contact us.
