In the spirit of our founding mission to uplift SMEs during challenging times, we are excited to announce the latest evolution in our services—our brand-new Start-up Advisor Initiative. The idea behind this improvement was born from a gap we identified in our existing program: a lack of focused support tailored to smaller businesses and start-ups.
Why the Need?
Start-ups are the lifeblood of our economy and the impact they have on its future trajectory is monumental. Their innovation, courage, and agility are crucial in driving growth and creating new opportunities. However, many of these businesses were not eligible for our existing Volunteer Advisor program, which focuses on enterprises with revenues between £500k-£20m.
Given that we are All Together in our efforts to help and support the founders and CEOs of British SMEs, we felt it was our duty to expand our offering to help those previously unable to access our support.
We’re enlisting the help of a brand-new advisory board —a dedicated panel comprised of some of the sharpest minds in the start-up ecosystem, just as our Volunteer Advisors are a who’s-who of the UK’s most prominent corporate leaders. These Start-up Advisors are existing members of our community who have benefitted from the mentorship of our Volunteer Advisors. They have graciously agreed to donate their time and invaluable experience to guide the burgeoning entrepreneurs of today.
What’s on Offer?
If you’re steering a start-up with annual revenues between £50k and £400k, this is an opportunity you can’t afford to miss. Apply today to gain up to three hours of pro bono mentoring from industry veterans who have walked in your shoes and found great success. Get hands-on, actionable advice tailored to your unique challenges and aspirations, which could be the key to unlocking your business’s full potential. Whether you’re looking for a Start-up Growth Advisor or someone you can simply bounce ideas off, our Start-up Advisor roster is full of talented small business leaders. Take a look here.
An Open Call for Advisors
The interest we have had in our newest venture has been nothing short of incredible, and we expect that interest to grow. Our aim, therefore, is to continually broaden the reach and depth of this initiative by expanding our board of Start-up Advisors.
If you’re a business leader with experience in start-ups and a passion for nurturing the next generation of entrepreneurs, we would be delighted if you would consider becoming a Start-up Advisor, today. Join our growing board to share your experience and expertise with new founders and become a transformative part of their journey.
In a world that’s still navigating uncertainty, support and guidance are more precious than ever, and we’re doing our bit to make sure British start-ups don’t just survive, but thrive. Apply now for start-up mentorship or get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org to join us as an Advisor so we can shape the future, All Together.
A huge thank you to the founding members of our Start-up Advisor board for making this initiative possible. Your expertise and commitment are essential to our mission of bolstering British SMEs, and without you, this service would not exist.
