Business Mentors

We also act as the Mentor Manager for Business Mentors NZ which is a nationwide network of volunteer business mentors.

Locally we have a pool of over 20 very talented, experienced mentors who regularly volunteer their time to assist new and existing businesses.  Prior to becoming a mentor all applicants are screened and interviewed.  They also are required to attend an Accreditation Training Day and sign a Mentor Agreement Contract which covers potential issues such as conflicts of interest or confidentiality. 

Business Mentor Programmes:

The Start Up Mentor Programme:  this provides six months of accelerated mentoring for people who have a new business idea or are looking for help in starting a new business.  

The General Mentor Programme:  which is 12 months of confidential one-on-one advice for owners of small and medium-sized businesses that are currently trading and who want to grow or need help to solve specific business challenges.

Community Mentors:  is for not for profit organisations, social enterprise groups, charities (both registered and un-registered) and NGOs based in New Zealand. 

Please contact the local Mentor Manager to discuss how a mentor can help you or drop by our office at Level 2, 3 Main Street Blenheim (in with Lifetime, above Rebel Sports).
