This research analyses findings from a survey of 902 UK small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) exploring how the demand for business mentors among SMEs can be increased.
The research explores:
- awareness of business mentoring opportunities
- interest in and attitudes towards using business mentors
- barriers to using mentors
The report also reviews how SMEs currently use business mentors and their experience in doing so.
Following the Get Mentoring campaign which aimed to increase the supply of trained business mentors, this research helps us understand how to make better use of this new mentoring supply.
