One of the key problems to solve involves compatibility. What would the folks at sites like Match.com or Netflix construct in the way of an algorithm to find perfect mentor/mentee pairings? What questions would you ask program participants to understand their expectations and preferences? What would the mentor matching service advertise as "success?" How often and when would it follow-up to find out how things are going? How is mentorship fundamentally different from other matching tasks like pairing college roommates, dating, product preferences?
I have many more questions and no definitive answers at this point! Stay tuned and provide your own analysis here!
