When you're starting up or developing a business, the support and guidance of a trained expert can go a long way.
Business mentors are independent, unbiased professionals from a wide range of companies across the UK. Mentors could be experts in sales or marketing or have senior management roles, but they all share one key quality - a passion for enterprise and passing on their expertise to nurture young businesses.
Whether you're looking for a fresh perspective on your business, a sounding board for ideas or more networking opportunities, a mentor could be that critical friend you need to succeed.
