how to set up a business

At HSMB, we provide a Student Mentoring Programme to help turn visions into realities. Business mentoring and support can help strengthen both your business and your own entrepreneurial skills and can be invaluable in getting a new business off the ground.

The Student Mentoring Programme provides skilled mentors who have ‘been there, done that’. They have a wealth of experience to fall back on which will allow them to identify pitfalls and positives in your business that you may not have considered. This will prevent you from making needless mistakes, saving time and money in the process.

Working with a mentor allows you to be alongside someone who looks at the bigger picture and can identify potential bstacles to business development early on.

When you work on your business all day, every day, it is easy to lose perspective – a mentor can provide an alternative viewpoint.
