The Small Business Solutions mentoring program offers short, sharp, focused blocks of dedicated time and support. You can access the program as often or infrequently as you need. Our mentors will work with your schedule.


What our mentors offer

Business health check

Acting as a business coach, your mentor will take the time to carefully analyse what you and your business need to grow through a business health check. Then, guided by your mentor, you will have the opportunity to put your big ideas for your small business into action.
