Startup Guide and Toolkit for Local Government

We have just released a Startup Guide and Toolkit for Local Government to identify and tap into startup and entrepreneurial activity in their local areas.

Why is mentoring important?

Mentoring is proven to drive learning and development for both mentees and mentors. Startup founders with mentors often perform better in their role, and have greater job satisfaction than those without.
