Mentor Programme for SME’s

Opportunity for small business owners to access training and support from a free business mentor for 12 months

Several Local Boards have provided sponsorship to a programme that aims to help small businesses (3 or less FTE employees) access the Business Mentors New Zealand programme free of charge (usual charge is $295 plus GST to get access to 12 months with a Business Mentor).

You might be eligible for a free business mentor with Business Mentors New Zealand (BMNZ). BMNZ provides up to 12 months of training and support for small business owners who want to grow, solve business challenges, and build their skills.

The team at Auckland Unlimited designed the Local Board Business Mentor Programme to help more businesses access mentoring to tackle their business’s challenges and opportunities. The programme is supported by nine local boards across Auckland.

Small business owners in those local board areas can register for a free business mentor, but please note: spaces are limited.

Who is this programme for?

  • You’re a small business owner with three or fewer full-time equivalent employees, and
  • You have been running your small business for 12 months or more, and
  • You’re able to commit time to the mentoring relationship for 12 months, and
  • This is your first time working with a business mentor from Business Mentors New Zealand, and
  • You’re located within the Henderson-Massey Local Board area.
