Become a Mentor
Mentoring is as important, if not more so, than the Start Up Loan itself when starting out in business for the first time.
We are recruiting volunteer mentors throughout the UK – people who can spare a few hours every month to provide mentoring support and to inspire our new entrepreneurs.
We want people who understand what it means to run a small business and who are passionate about helping start-ups to flourish.
To be a mentor, you need to:
-Offer an independent and external perspective to assist your mentee when they are making decisions.
-Be a trusted shoulder to lean on when your mentee is feeling anxious or uncertain.
-Be an outlet for discussing ideas, challenges and new opportunities.
-Help your mentee access new networks and make connections.
