“Björn Stansvik got the idea for his first mobile application in 1999, when he was struggling to learn Chinese and wanted to carry language-learning software in his pocket.
The idea didn’t catch on as quickly as he’d hoped. But Stansvik’s early bet on mobile technology has more than paid off in recent years as the tech company he founded, MentorMate, has grown rapidly.
Minneapolis-based MentorMate will soon more than double the size of its headquarters with a move to about 11,000 square feet at 3036 Hennepin Ave.”
