Mentoring is the process by which the experience and wisdom are shared between people; the mentor and the mentee. This process is expected to support the mentee’s career, skills and network.
“If you ask any successful businessperson, they will always have had a great mentor at some point along the road. If you want success then it takes hard work, hard work and more hard work. But it also takes a little help along the way. If you are determined and enthusiastic then people will support you.” Sir Richard Branson
For startup founder or small business manager, mentor is like a coach, who will help you to refine your skills and focus on your business idea. Mentor can often give you a different perspective on problems as they are not personally involved with your business like professional advisers such as lawyers, accountants or even friends. For this reason, it’s important to find not only a mentor who has experience and knowledge, but also someone you can trust and feel at ease with.
We are currently developing relationships with some of the Hunters most successful business owners and managers who are keen to help our Futurepreneurs on their business start up journey.
