Look no further- our Entrepreneur Business Mentoring program is designed with you
in mind.
The Entrepreneur Program is available to Pre-Startups and some Businesses under 12-
Months old.


How do we expect to help you?
Starting a new business is a difficult balancing act of many factors and timings. Turning the
business into a success takes enormous amounts of energy, flexibility, focus and often
finance. The keys to success vary significantly depending on the type of business and the
business acumen of the Owner.

We look to help you focus on what is most important at any point in time whilst providing you
with an external view of your business model based on extensive business experience.
Typical areas addressed, but by no means complete or relevant to each start up, are:

- Product and market – knowing what your product is, how it is differentiated from
competitors, what the potential market looks like.


- Sourcing and production – sourcing your product or service, managing costs and
continuity of supply.


- Finance – managing profit, cash flow, investors to provide the business with the
means to make money and grow.


- Security and risk – managing factors like patents and business threats, recognising,

and adapting to impediments.


- Planning – focusing on the priorities and resources to achieve the best outcomes in
the shortest times.


-  Management systems to support your Business Model.
