What is Growth Through Mentoring?

Mentoring helps businesses to grow.

This is why the North East LEP’s Growth Through Mentoring programme connects North East businesses in all sectors with mentors who have first-hand experience of scaling a business.

Our mentors can help you to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to lead your business to the next level of growth. They appreciate the highs and lows, as well as the challenges of growing a business having been there and done it themselves.

How does it work?

Growth Through Mentoring can match you with a mentor who’s suited to you and your business needs.

Once you’ve been matched, you and your mentor will have a series of three mentoring sessions over a three - six month period.

We’ve already matched more than 55 business leaders in the North East with a mentor.
