Mentors Make a Difference

Discover how a mentor can help your business

With support and inspiration from a mentor, you can achieve your goals and get on the track to business success.  Women’s Enterprise Centre mentoring programs connect women who are in the early stages of business with experienced business owners to help improve business knowledge, increase productivity, build confidence, get feedback and be held accountable.

"The mentoring program is an incredible experience that allowed me to regain focus on my business to bring it to a greater profit.
This was priceless.
