Getting expert advice and support from experienced and successful mentors can be a critical success factor for a startup. Our panel of business mentors have the breadth of skills, connections and experience (of failures and successes!) that provide a key element of the NEF+ programme.

All NEF+ participants can be bespoke-matched with a business mentor who has industry-specific knowledge and expertise that is directly relevant to that founder. Mentors guide, support and challenge participants, helping them accelerate their ventures. Our mentor panel is coordinated by Philippa Seal.
