Free mentoring for region’s tech business from govt-backed network Be The Business

02 March 2021

The Silverstone Technology Cluster (STC) is offering tech business leaders across the region free expert mentoring as part of its new Mentoring for Growth programme with the government-backed Be the Business (BtB) network.

With a 94% satisfaction rating, the BtB-devised programme helps small and medium-sized businesses benefit from the expertise and experience found in larger firms.

A mentor provides an independent and experienced sounding board to support a business as it works through questions and challenges. Previous mentees have sought support on strategic planning, digital and operational change, product development and new market entry, as well as workforce and skills improvements.

Furthermore, a business can have multiple mentors (one assigned to each leader within that organisation).

Be the Business’s mentors are experienced business leaders – many working in senior roles at leading firms such as BAE Systems, GSK, Rolls-Royce and Siemens.

They offer:
• Support and practical insight
• Fresh perspective (challenges faced, decisions to be made)
• Challenge thinking and help continue to build a strong and healthy business
• Dedicated ‘one-to-one’ mentoring focused on individual needs
