I have a great desire to open my own cafe and also to start a company that allows me to sell my art craft work. But I’m having difficulty in figuring out how to get financial help. Could I get help with my business plan and advice from mentors? How can I find them? I live in Worthing, West Sussex.
You can get help for your business plan from qualified accountants, business plan consultants and business mentors with relevant experience. A good business plan will help you to secure funding.
1.You can either work with a private mentor who you may have to pay
2. join a government-funded mentoring programme.
Both types of mentors can be found at your local chamber of commerce or other business networking groups. You can also visit www.mentorsme.co.uk for a list mentoring organisations.
