The Mentoring Service was established to help young or growing eligible companies improve their chances of survival and growth. Occasionally, developing or start up businesses encounter a specific problem or want to undertake a project that requires skills beyond the normal range of the Owner/Manager. Our panel of Mentors are all experienced business executives and consultants who are skilled in working with the owner/manager to identify the problem, find solutions and implement them.

The Mentor's Role

The Mentor's role is to listen, counsel and facilitate the business owner / manager in developing their own business skills and capacities.

The Service

Applications for mentor support are considered in a similar manner to funding applications. Priority may be given to businesses with potential for growth, which demonstrate a clear need for the service, and which are not receiving assistance under other business programmes. In the case of pre enterprise / start ups, preference will be given to promoters with access to sufficient funding sources (in combination with public funding and/or private sector borrowing) to cover the cost of starting a business capable of providing a realistic wage to at least one employee in the short term.
