We’re looking for women entrepreneurs with the passion, drive, and commitment to join us as mentees.  They should be running (or about to launch) a business, speak English at the intermediate level, have weekly access to the internet, be/become members of Business Engage, and be able to meet with their mentor online at least twice/month for 12 months.


The benefits to mentees (and mentors) are immense, but the key is in their commitment

We’re looking for women entrepreneurs who could truly benefit from this programme and the support of a mentor, and who are eager to participate.

How does the Mentoring Programme work? 

The Foundation’s programme is personalised and tailored to your needs.   It is all done online, which allows for flexibility and freedom.  You’ll be matched with a mentor who has the expertise, outlook, and energy needed to help you achieve your business goals!  You’ll also gain access to a vibrant community of accomplished entrepreneurs and professionals, and have access to a wealth of support and

resources.  

The key to success is in your commitment, both to your business and to your mentoring relationship.  

We do hope you’ll take advantage of this exciting opportunity and look forward to hearing about all of the great things you achieve with your mentor if you are selected!
