Background/Objectives: In an idea-commercialization support platform, online mentoring is given for idea incubation. For successful mentoring, appropriate mentor-mentee matching is crucial. Methods/Statistical Analysis: To increase mentor-mentee matching rates, this study matches the keywords extracted from a mentee’ ideas with those derived from the ideas on which a mentor provides mentoring. After estimating mentor-mentee experiences with the frequency of mentoring succeeded or failed, a mentor with a high level of experience was matched with a mentee. Findings: According to analysis on a matching period by improving the mentor-mentee matching process, the percentage of matching for the day increased by 7.9%. Then, it declined by 13.6% in 7 or more days. Improvements/Applications: It is able to increase the success rate of mentoring by improving the mentor-mentee matching process and shorten the period until mentoring is actually provided. Ultimately, it can increase satisfaction with a mentor’s and mentee’s satisfaction with the idea-commercialization support platform and facilitate online mentoring.
