Why Mentoring?

‘Whenever I am asked what is the missing link between a promising business person and a successful one, mentoring comes to mind’. Richard Branson -:- Virgin.

‘If you ask any successful person how they got to where they are today, chances are they would tell you about a mentor they had somewhere along the way’ Barack Obama -:- US President.

A willingness to learn and share. That’s all we ask of our mentors and mentees as we engage our business community in the PowerUp Your Business Mentorship Series. In recent years we have seen significant growth in the number of new business startups in the South Georgian Bay area. We have also identified a gap in service. We are confident that PowerUp will be a resounding success as it meets the needs of our communities’ business owners and their appetite for growth and success.
