Creating a neurodiverse workforce

Taylor & Seltzer

Our mission is to get 100,000 autistic

adults into the workforce by 2025.

 

Built by autistic individuals, 

for autistic individuals

To make this vision a reality, we need to work together to build something that individuals on the autism spectrum feel comfortable using. Our goal is for you to apply ONCE to Mentra, and we will take it from there and do our part to find ideal career opportunities where your brain and heart can thrive. This app is meant to put you in front of recruiters rather than forcing you to go after them.

Conner Reinhardt

Cofounder

I never understood the humanity behind the accessibility movement until hearing Jhillika’s story about her autistic brother Vicky. I saw a chance to contribute to real change in our society. And that is something I’ll never turn down!
