How does the mentoring programme work?
After meeting with our Mentoring Manager, you will be given access to our mentoring platform. You will be asked to connect with a mentor and once you have a confirmed mentoring relationship, you will have up to 12 months to work together, but this can vary depending on need and stage.
It will be your responsibility to check-in on a monthly basis with your mentor, to update us here at Heropreneurs with your progress or challenges, and make sure you have made the necessary meetings with them to keep moving forward.
Every mentoring relationship is different, but they work the best when you -
1- Have regular contact
2- Like and respect each other
3- Work together
If you think this sounds like you, please apply now here.

Attend our evolving programme of networking and events
The Heropreneurs Mentoring Programme is the heart of the charity.
There is no other mentoring programme for entrepreneurs that offers the level of tailoring, experience and insight for each business that the Heropreneurs Mentors are able to give veterans.
ONE TO ONE MENTORING
Those on the Heropreneurs Mentoring Programme are put forwards by their mentor to attend exclusive events for one on one critical friends seminars with leading business partners and other mentors. These 'Dragons' Den' events provide insight and feedback at a new level and prepare businesses for the next stage of growth.
Graduates of the Heropreneurs Mentoring Programme are encouraged to be active participants in the Heropreneurs Network. We run a number of events each year and partner on many more. The opportunities and contacts that can be made extend well beyond the veteran community.
