Government Launches new Mentoring Scheme for SME’s

The Department for Business Innovation and & Skills (BIS) has launched a new mentoring scheme designed to give British SME‘s free access to more knowledge and support.

The web site is .  The aim of the website is to offer a single point of access for those seeking mentoring and those seeking to be mentors, covering the whole of the UK.

Set up by the UK’s five largest high street banks, the scheme will offer support on a range of issues faced by businesses, from finance to marketing to HR.

The Government wants to encourage experienced business people to sign up to mentor new and growing businesses.

Business and Enterprise Minister Mark Prisk said:

From my own experiences running a small business I know how valuable insight can be from people who have done it all before.

Small business owners have repeatedly told us that the support they value most comes from other experienced business people. For the first time in the UK, there will be a single, cohesive network of mentoring provision.

“Small firms are the lifeblood of our economy and we are determined to give them every opportunity to succeed and secure the long-term growth we need.”

At Bargate Murray we have specialist expertise in helping: start-up companies; companies expanding to the UK, and also companies that are seeking to grow their business further.

Unlike many other law firms we always make great efforts to get to know more about the business of our clients. This allows us to work in partnership and spot new opportunities, and business risks, and allow us to add value by introducing clients to our extensive national and international network of professional business contacts.

How can Bargate Murray help your business grow?
