With seven offices in Minnesota, Sweden and Bulgaria, our strategists, designers, architects, developers and quality assurance engineers blend offshore economy with onshore flexibility delivering value for clients near and far.

We began as entrepreneurs and still think like them approaching each project with an eye toward scope, technical efficiency and user experience.

MentorMate started as an idea. CEO Björn Stansvik believed the right app could teach students foreign languages faster. Co-founder Dimitar Dobrev in Sofia, Bulgaria had the programming talent to make it a reality. So they did. Soon other innovators wanted to work with them.

The two branches of MentorMate evolved together. Our design, architecture, marketing and leadership teams office in Minneapolis, while our innovation team draws talent from Bulgaria and Minneapolis. Our new office in Sweden will position us to locally serve the western European market.
