Are you ready for the challenges that running a new business will bring? One of the best ways to find out is to talk to people who have already done it and that’s where our experienced advisers come in

Business Advice & Mentoring

All our business advisers have personal experience in starting and setting up new companies. Their advice is impartial, confidential and free, and they’ll help you address and overcome any concerns you may have.

The adviser will work with you on business planning, including looking at the funds you have available, market and competitor research, and the challenges of starting or growing your business.

Many new entrepreneurs have benefited from our advisers’ knowledge and experience.

If you have queries and concerns but don’t know whether you need a one-to-one session, please contact us anyway and we’ll be happy to help.

FREE Business Toolkit. We have compiled a toolkit which we hope that you will find useful and is available (free of charge) upon request. Please contact us by email at:

  • A one-to-one relationship between a less experienced person (mentee) and an established professional (mentor), which provides consistent support, guidance and practical help
  • A process by which an experienced professional shares their personal skills, knowledge and experience with another person
  • A means of enabling a less experienced person to gain the necessary skills, knowledge and confidence to be able to perform at a higher level
  • An opportunity for a less experienced person to gain access to impartial, non-judgmental guidance and support
  • A process of working together to achieve predetermined goals and objectives
  • A two-way process through which both parties derive satisfaction from the progress, and success is attained through working together

Meeting with a business mentor will give you a chance to discuss your ideas, voice any areas of concern and generally benefit from the wealth of experience that our business mentors have.  If you’re looking for a bit of extra help why not get in touch.

This opportunity is for established businesses in Surrey and Hampshire and is offered for up to a 12 month period for a nominal cost. If you’d like to apply for a business mentor, please contact us.
