Meet Two of Our Mentors

I am very experienced in start-ups, some very successful and others less so! I can take an idea from conception to stock market flotation and have done so. I have launched successful businesses with very few resources and am adept at getting the best out of limited resources and will give very practical advice.

Hi, I am a Director and Business owner providing Warehouse Management Systems to businesses. Think of Amazon Distribution but for the mid-size business. We have been involved in developing and taking to market multiple products and seeing the full life cycle of an idea from conception through to end of life. It is more than about the idea, one of my favorite sayings is “nothing happens until it is sold”. If you want to have a chat about your idea then I would be happy to talk.

Is Starting a Business Right For You?

Start 1-1 chats with mentors.

It can be difficult to know if something is right for you without having a go first. Speaking to someone that has come from the same starting point as you can really help you to understand whether starting a business is right for you. Our industry mentors come from both Sage and successful start-up businesses, so you can ask them anything from ‘How did you balance the business with having a family?’ to ‘What is the best way to organise my finances when starting a business?’.

Chat 1-1 with a mentor today and take the first step to become your own boss.
