Mentoring is a very valuable form of support for all entrepreneurs, particularly those starting and running early stage businesses.

Being able to tap into the independent experience, support and wisdom of someone who has been where you are, and who knows how to overcome the challenges, not only saves precious time and money, but helps address feelings of loneliness and isolation.  

It’s also a two-way process – many mentors tell us that they receive much personal satisfaction from being able to help others on their enterprise journey.

For women thinking of becoming mentors on the Accelerating Women’s Enterprise programme, we have created a Mentoring Handbook to provide the answers to questions you may have.
