Business Mentoring for Social Entrepreneurs
- Dear social entrepreneurs [based in London]
Are you looking for free long-term business mentoring for your social enterprise? We have the right thing for you!
Business in the Community (BITC) is running a programme to provide business mentoring to social entrepreneurs at all stages of growth. The mentors are recruited from BITC's 850 member companies and are senior business leaders from a variety of backgrounds with a wide range of expertise.
Social entrepreneurs will be matched to mentors according to the skills and interests of the mentor and the objectives of the social entrepreneur. Every relationship will differ, but an overview of the kind of support a mentor will offer is:
* Business planning skills and financial projections.
* Leadership skills: Support in how to best communicate organisational vision.
* Advice on how best to recruit and manage employees.
* Time management and opportunity management.
* PR and marketing advice.
* Providing constructive feedback and help setting goals
If you are a social entrepreneur and would like a business mentor, or would like more information on the programme, please contact Agathe Suzanne at BITC - agathe.suzanne(at)bitc.org.uk<mailto:agathe.suzanne@...>, 0207 566 6612.
