Startup Mentoring

It takes a lot more than a good idea to start a successful business. Our Startup Mentoring service provides you with up to 12-months of one-on-one Mentoring to help guide your business in the right direction.

Who is Startup Business Mentoring for?

The programme is designed for people who have a business idea and:

  • Want to explore the idea in a confidential environment
  • Want to assess the feasibility of their idea and the expertise within it
  • Want to develop a robust business plan
  • Want to put the right foundations in place for their business
  • Want help to understand legal obligations



Who are our Mentors?

Our Mentors are experienced business people who are willing to give their time to support their local business community. They are from a diverse range of industries and understand what it takes to make a business prosper in New Zealand. 

Mentors are only motivated by your success, they are not emotionally or financially invested in your business.


What is the fee?

For a small registration fee of $295 plus GST, you will have up to 12-months access to a Business Mentor who will help you develop your business idea and yourself as a new business owner.

As we are a not-for-profit organisation, this one-off fee helps to cover the administrative costs of our service. This should not be considered a 'fee for service'.
