Supporting entrepreneurs in the Midlands

Creating Tomorrow’s Change Makers

Access to mentors is one of the key elements of the comprehensive support provided by the FORWARD Accelerator Programme. At any stage of growth, mentors are able to provide businesses with advice, expertise and guidance which can be used to shape business strategy, solve problems and avoid costly mistakes whilst also unlocking pathways to higher levels of growth. 

As part of FORWARD, Startups are able to access the whole pool of mentors rather than being assigned an individual mentor which gives them access to a wider range of perspectives and experiences. We have constructed an international pool of mentors from Birmingham through to Australia, who have an amazing range of business experience, across a wide range of sectors and industries, with backgrounds ranging from those who have built, scaled and exited a business through to those with years of experience at some of the world’s most successful organisations.
