About Tablmakr.

Research overwhelming demonstrates that mentor programs empower individuals and strengthen communities. 

But actually running a mentor program is a ton of work. As a result, every year many programs get discontinued, experience budget cuts, or just never get created. Many people and communities who could benefit from mentor programs, don't have access to them.

Tablmakr focuses on creating the technology so you can create, sustain, and grow a mentor program for your community.  




Rooted in Research and Community

Ryan Wold founded Tablmakr in 2021 when he was a PhD student at the University of Minnesota. 

Ryan's dissertation research focused on the the technologies used to facilitate mentor programs. After interviewing dozens of mentor program coordinators across academia, non-profits, government, corporations, and startup accelerators he realized that mentor program coordinators don't have access to the tools they need to keep their programs going. So he decided to start building them.

 In the spring of 2022 Ryan was awarded the DePodesta Fellowship. Sponsored by the ECMC Group and the Holmes Center for Entrepreneurship, the DePodesta Fellowship provides launch grants and mentorship to help graduate researchers translate their ideas into a venture that addresses an important problem in higher education. 


1 Million Mentor Programs

We are on a mission to provide support to over 1,000,000 mentor programs. 

We do this by helping people create, sustain, and grow mentor programs. 

We are starting with higher ed, but the research shows that once people experience the benefits of mentorship in one part of their life, they seek it out in every other part of their life.

The convergence of the great resignation and the pandemic of loneliness has created an unprecedented demand for mentor programs.

We need to share experiences, wisdom, and skills more than ever before. 

Tablmakr is on a mission to connect potential with experience. Everywhere.
