Mentorship plays a hugely significant role in the successful growth of small businesses. In fact, a recent survey of SMEs in South Africa rated mentorship as the leading support factor for high-growth businesses participating in national long-term business growth support programmes.
A skilled Mentor will support, guide, advise and assist entrepreneurs and emerging business leaders to make good decisions, access new opportunities, take risks where appropriate, and grow their own skills base for the future.
The challenge is that mentoring from qualified and skilled individuals, especially face-to-face mentorship, is expensive and beyond the reach of many of those who would benefit most from it. The Mentor Hotline offers access to some of the country’s most experienced and successful business mentors, at an affordable rate. Our vision is to provide every emerging business in SA with the support they need to grow, create jobs and flourish for the long-term.
