Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) August 08, 2012
Thanks to last year’s record growth, MentorMate, a Minnesota-based mobile and web application development company, will be moving the location of their Minneapolis headquarters in November to accommodate a greater number of employees.
The move itself does not cover a considerable distance; it is roughly one mile from MentorMate’s current Uptown location at 2101 Hennepin Ave S. The new space will be located at 3036 Hennepin Ave S, the present office of advertising and branding agency, Mono. Located directly above the Magers & Quinn bookstore, the new site will provide 10,900 square footage of space which is more than double their current office space. The new lease begins November 1st.
The decision to stay in Uptown was made on the basis of fostering an upbeat, youthful, and creative office culture. "We love the Uptown area and we want to stay here. It fits our culture”, says MentorMate’s Director of Marketing, Andy Forsberg. “We've outgrown our current space, plus the Mono office is a big upgrade for us."
The mid-size IT firm has experienced phenomenal growth since the start of 2012, adding an additional 30 employees to its team. Placing first of all Minnesota companies on the Flyover 50 list of fastest-growing companies in mid-America, MentorMate’s 141% year-over-year revenue growth from 2010 to 2011 is largely the reason for the rapid increase in size. The push for companies to go mobile continues to fuel MentorMate’s growth.
The company also opened a third Bulgaria-based office earlier this year in May in the city of Plovdiv.
MentorMate is a Minneapolis-based IT solutions company specializing in full-scale mobile and web application development. While based in the US, the company maintains three offices in the largest cities of Bulgaria: Sofia, Veliko Tarnovo, and Plovdiv. The current team consists of 135 employees with plans to add an additional 40-60 before the end of the year.
