Regardless of your location, there are many other schemes up and down the country that could benefit you.
Other mentoring schemes

The mentoring programmes we’ve mentioned previously – our own Women Business Leaders Mentoring Programme and the support provided by Be the Business – are just three examples of mentoring that’s available in the UK for SMEs of all sizes. It’s also important to do your own research to find out what other support might exist in your area or sector.
