Thank you for your interest in becoming a Business Captain (mentor) We recognize that having a great business idea is only part of the equation, without the expertise and network of a good mentor even the best business brain can struggle to make it past the first hurdle. The majority of people we’ve met need advice and mentoring – they are hungry for it, and to get it in very concentrated form is critical to their future success.
The second item they need is to build their network, and they also want the validation of saying ‘Mr or Mrs X has invested time in me’ or ‘so-and-so wrote about me’. Ironically the last thing they want is money. It’s not the first thing, because they know that if they get the first three things right, that will come.
For this reason we provide all our beneficiaries with mentors, who can walk alongside our beneficiaries as they develop their understanding, personal capabilities and their business plans.
Our Business Captains provide support throughout the business development process. They inspire, support, guide, coach and advise their mentee. They can stop them from wasting money, and perhaps help them pitch for funding.
Please fill out the following information so that we can best understand your interests, work experience and achievements and match you with a suitable mentee:
