Monthly Mentoring

We have been hosting 1:1 monthly Business Advice Sessions at The British Library Business & IP Centre for over 10 years with great success.

Our advisors have often been asked to provide additional advice and guidance to help develop the ideas covered during the Business Advice Sessions. This type of ongoing support has proved to be of tremendous value – particularly for smaller businesses who often have limited budgets.

The Monthly Mentoring programme
To meet this need we have established a realistically priced Monthly Mentoring programme providing clients with the opportunity to meet a dedicated LBSS Advisor on a regular basis at the British Library Business & IP Centre.

We will provide you with the tools you need to launch and grow your business steadily, and your overall business skills will rapidly improve as we work closely with you.

In addition to meeting with your advisor for one hour per month the programme also provides unlimited email and telephone support.

You will get practical and strategic business advice on:
• Validating a new business idea
• Commercialising your innovation
• Business modelling & financial forecasting
• Introducing you to sources of funding
• Launching a minimum viable product (MVP)
• Marketing, attracting and keeping customers
• Distribution in UK and overseas markets
• Making the most of digital technology

How much does the Monthly Mentoring programme cost?
The cost to enrol on the programme ranges from £200 per month dependent on the size and stage of development of the company, with a minimum 3-6 month commitment.

Approved Advisors
All our advisors are approved providers of specialist business advice and support by Enterprise Nation Marketplace, and have been verified to have Professional Indemnity Insurance and Certification to an approved Professional/Trade Body.
