Business Mentors around a table

As part of our commitment to support local businesses, Somerset Council is offering six hours of free mentoring to Somerset small and medium (SME) sized businesses over a six-month period.

Why choose a mentor? 

A mentor offers a unique perspective that goes beyond what your team can provide. Drawing from their own experiences, mentors help identify blind spots, uncover hidden opportunities, and hold you accountable. Whether it’s optimising profits, finding new markets, refining growth strategies, or navigating complex business challenges, a mentor’s guidance can be invaluable.

Entrepreneurs worldwide recognise the value of having a mentor. Bill Gates, Richard Branson, and Mark Zuckerberg are just a few examples of successful business leaders who credit their achievements to the guidance and insights provided by mentors.

According to Richard Branson,

“If you ask any successful businessperson, they will always have had a great mentor at some point along the road.”
