Karin Heinzl

Founder of MentorMe

Karin Heinzl founded the social enterprise MentorMe – alone and without any previous business experience. She previously studied communication and political management and worked internationally in the fields of education, politics and development work. MentorMe successfully brings job-seeking women together with the world of work through individual mentoring, practical training and events. In this way, the women find a vocation in their profession and companies come into contact with female talent at an early stage. MentorMe has grown from 40 mentees in 2015 to over 5,000 mentees and mentors in 2023 and over 220 events per program year. Karin Heinzl is also a member of the board of the German Society for Mentoring, a member of the UN Women Austria Committee and a TEDx speaker and consultant.
