Hours saved per event
Impact Hub Floripa provides a mentoring service to match new entrepreneurs (known as microempreendedores individuais, or MEIs) with experienced business leaders.
Entrepreneurs looking for guidance with specific issues register their interest. Those with knowledge and experience offer to share their time and expertise with the community. The Impact Hub team organizes workshops and mentoring sessions to bring the two groups together.
Prior to finding Sheetgo, this matchmaking process was carried out manually, which was slow and inefficient.
Our matchmaking for mentors and mentees is now automated and this process, which used to be handled manually and took the team an entire day of work, can now be handled in a few minutes”

The Impact Hub team now use Sheetgo to connect a series of spreadsheets and automate the registration and matching process.
Businesspeople looking for a mentor register their interest via Google Forms, selecting which industry or issue they need help with and which times they are available.
Mentors volunteer via Google Forms, indicating their area of expertise and their availability. Sheetgo connections consolidate data from the mentees and mentors and filter this information into a matchmaking master spreadsheet. The system automatically identifies matches, and generates lists of 2 to 4 people for group mentoring sessions.
