Following the soft launch of the London Cleantech Cluster in the late summer (www.londoncleantechcluster.co.uk), Eventure Media Ltd are linking up with the Wax Chandlers Livery and developing a free mentoring arrangement for those that wish to participate. This is not limited to Greater London at all and is very much a nationwide activity.
Are you an experienced business person who would like to offer your services, initially at least on a pro bono basis, to a cleantech company that can benefit from your expertise? This can naturally lead on to non-executive positions in the future, as well as provide support for companies at a strategically important time in their development. Your expertise can be market specific or function specific, it does not matter. There is significant demand for expertise in the cleantech sector.
Company looking for a mentor
Alternatively, are you a young company that would like to receive input from an experienced executive on a pro bono basis? You might find that your senior management team is short of financial expertise, sales and marketing knowledge, presence or experience in a particular market or you simply need to have someone around to turn to who has done it all before successfully. This can be very much the case if you are seeking to attract funding or a partner.
No charge – just let us know
If you wish to be a pro bono mentor or you wish to have the significant benefits of a mentor to help you take your business forward, then let us know. There is no charge for this at all. Simply a wish for the London Cleantech Cluster platform to provide a basis to bring useful expertise to where it is needed. The Wax Chandlers Livery has a very capable pool of talent to call upon and they are willing to offer this in order to accelerate the adoption of sustainable solutions. We would like to extend their talent pool so that we can match as far as possible the needs of the mentees with the available mentors.
If you are interested, please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org with a short summary of either, your capabilities and experience to be a mentor, or what type of mentor you are looking for your company.
