The Kent Foundation launched its Volunteer Business Mentor service in 2010. Since then we have recruited and trained 110 business professionals from across Kent. With demand for our services always increasing we are always interested in recruiting more volunteers. By becoming a Volunteer Business Mentor you allow us to provide greater specialist support to Kent’s young business owners.
“Having a mentor during the process of starting a business was hugely beneficial to me. Having someone with knowledge and experience in business as well as an unbiased opinion helped me make the right decisions, the first time. I had great support in creating a business plan that I could use as a tool and a guide during different growth stages of my business” Daniel Warren – Mint Fresh Services
