Mentoring enables creative businesses to see the value of advice from someone who has been there and done it, says Jackie Brenan.
The UK has some of the world’s best and brightest creative talent. At Nesta, an innovation charity, our Creative Business Mentor Network provides mentors for ambitious creative firms that want to grow.
Over the past five years, we have seen impressive results from mentoring and are keen to encourage the take-up of volunteer mentoring across the sector. Recently, we gathered the views of creative businesses, and many told us that they either are working with a mentor or would like to work with one.
