Small Business Start-Up

What is small business start-up mentoring?

Business start-up mentoring is the support and guidance of one individual to another to help with business start-ups or established firms who wish to take their business to the next level.

Business mentors help individuals develop professionally and support them to reaching their desired business goals. The relationship between a mentor and a mentee is one that is open, honest and transparent.

Starting a business can be rewarding and exciting, but it can also be a difficult process that is challenging and risky. Figures show that up to one third of business start-ups fail in their first year. However, there are many business start-ups that do survive and those that seek support are usually more successful.

Your business could be within the two thirds of businesses that don’t just survive but thrive with the help and support of Centre for Resolution’s business mentoring.

‘’How will business mentoring help my business to reach the next step?’’

Our business mentors have a vast amount of experience in running a business. They will be able to provide you with advice on what the next step is and the do’s and don’ts to make your business successful. Sometimes people get bogged down into the every day running of a business that they miss vital opportunities or steps that need to be taken and our business mentors will help you to realise when you should take these opportunities. If you are a new start up, our business mentors will also help you to realise steps you may have not thought about for example advice on search engine optimisation, which is something that most businesses don’t even know about.

Overall a business mentor is there to enable you to take the steps that you need in order for you to set up your business and give it the best opportunity of surviving or push your business to the next level.

‘Can business mentoring also help me personally?’’

We have found over the years that the very fact that people engage a mentor can have transferable benefits. Not only will mentoring help your business but can also help you as an individual develop. This could include things like confidence and self-esteem, motivation and productivity. Once people engage in mentoring they feel they have a support system behind them to enable them to take the leap for certain goals, and this therefore then builds their confidence.
