The Business Mentoring programme enables small and medium sized business owners to access the skills and knowledge of experienced and successful business people, helping them to achieve their business goals. When matching our clients with mentors we take into account your business needs, industry and what you are looking for from the relationship. This helps to make a good match for you to achieve your business goals.

A mentor can provide:

  • Independent, impartial advice.
  • Peace of mind, increased confidence, a fresh perspective, inspiration or simply a sounding board to bounce ideas off for growing your business.
  • Assistance to implement improvements, support which is not often available after attending a business course or workshop.
  • An empathetic person to listen to the challenges and difficulties you face - sometimes this alone is all that’s needed to identify strategies and opportunities for growth.
  • Mentoring can challenge small business owners to go further, set new goals and achieve better results.


Here’s what a recent client of ours based on the coast of Taranaki had to say: 
“The mentoring programme provided by Venture Taranaki was totally invaluable to us. It enabled us to access the expertise that we wouldn’t have otherwise had access to. Our mentor was able to give our business focus and gave us the ability to get through a really difficult time in retail. Our mentor was very supportive and made for a positive, positive experience!” 
– Lindsey from Coastal Organic Seeds

The mentoring programme caters for all businesses surrounding the mountain including New Plymouth, Waitara, Inglewood, Stratford, Eltham, Hawera, Opunake and everywhere in between.
