Business Mentors in Bristol

Bristol has a proud manufacturing history, and whilst this may not be as strong as it once was, there is huge growth in other industries. Bristol is now home to many creative entrepreneurial businesses, not least Aardman, the creators of Wallace and Gromit. And although huge businesses such as Clarks Shoes and Screwfix have long been based in neighbouring Somerset, the county remains predominantly a small business economy, with 90% of businesses employing less than 10 people, and 70% with a turnover of less than £200k.

Whatever the size and industry of your business, our local business mentors can help you along your journey. Our mentors are equipped with extensive knowledge about business opportunities in this area, as well as a deeper understanding of what it takes to move your company to the next level.
