New investment for 10,000 volunteer business mentors

Mark Prisk announced new investment for 10,000 volunteer business mentors

New grant funding of £1.2m will support a mentoring scheme to recruit 10,000 business volunteers from small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). This will add to the number of business mentors available through mentorsme.co.uk to bring the total number of business mentors to around 26,000.

The new mentoring portal, mentorsme.co.uk, was launched in the summer to give entrepreneurs access to mentoring from the experienced business people whose advice they most value. It provides a single point of access for those seeking mentoring throughout the UK and is operated by the British Bankers Association (BBA).

Mark Prisk, said:

“Businesses tell us they want to get advice from other experienced business people and we know that those seeking support are more likely to succeed.

“Mentoring can deliver significant economic benefits from just a small commitment of time and resources. Building a relationship with a mentor can have a positive effect on your business, whether you are just starting up or are already established.”
