MentorHUB@HKUST is an aggregator of mentors and facilitators of entrepreneurial minded HKUST students who work towards realising their entrepreneurship success. Unlike traditional mentoring that focuses on face-to-face interactions among pre-assigned mentees/mentors, this community promotes open and virtual mentoring, in which mentors and mentees can freely reach out to one another according to their own needs and interests anytime, anywhere.

In this digital age with new communication paradigms, this newly emerged form of mentoring will facilitate more rapid, responsive and timely exchange between mentors and mentees, resulting in real-time feedback and just-in-time advice that are conducive to startup development and growth.
