By sharing the entrepreneurial experiences of mentors, this service gives the business the confidence to develop and grow, and opens up a great network of contacts that can open doors and inspire new thinking.

With a large and diverse pool of mentors across all sectors, the business is matched with a mentor that has the right skills and experience to add value to the business.

If you are a Scottish Business generating a steady turnover and want to increase this by £200,000 or more over a three year period, you are eligible to access this funded service.

This service is delivered in partnership between Scottish Enterprise and Scottish Chambers of Commerce.

What business leaders say

My mentor was a perfect match for me. Her open-minded approach and general business style matched my personality to a tee which is why I couldn’t be more enthusiastic about the support. My mentor was instrumental in my career progression.

Our mentors

Mentors act as a trusted ally and a sounding board. Their role is to create an open and honest relationship with a business person and provide a confidential atmosphere to encourage you to feel confident to try out new ideas, address new opportunities or issues that are difficult to discuss with other senior colleagues in your business.

Mentors support your development by giving feedback to reinforce the business’ strengths and to help focus on those areas where you want to develop and grow.
