Cardinal dubs MentorcliQ mentoring software a ‘no brainer’
Cardinal Health enthusiastically using startup’s ‘no-brainer’ mentor-managing software
Cardinal Health Inc. has turned to Columbus software startup MentorcliQ LLC to help manage employee mentorship programs in several divisions across the 34,000-person company.
Based on the results of a pilot engagement, Dublin-based Cardinal at the end of January expanded its contract with Mentorcliq, which suggests matches for mentors and workers, encourages their interaction and provides data to measure the effectiveness of mentorship. After an initial registration process, all interaction with the software is through email and existing calendars.
Mentorcliq on pace to double users after breakout 2014 for mentor-matching software
Columbus software startup Mentorcliq LLC increased revenue by sixfold in the first quarter, and it’s aiming to more than double its size this year.
Founded in 2012 by brothers Phil George and Andy George, the company that automates tasks for running employee mentorship programs recently closed a funding round of more than $100,000 – the specific number was not disclosed – from individuals and Rev1 Ventures, adding to a $70,000 seed round last year.
What If: MentorcliQ
“What if everyone had a great mentor and we made it easy?” Phil George, co-founder of Mentorcliq.
If that had been the case when Phil and his brother Andy were growing up, MentorcliQ might never have been born.
Instead the George brothers would be running a thriving decorative stone business.
