KickStart Mentorship Programme

KickStart BVI is on a mission to change the prospects of entrepreneurship for good and we need your help to do it.

We’re constantly on the lookout for highly experienced business people to help us nurture the next generation of talented Caribbean entrepreneurs. As a Mentor or Coach, you will guide entrepreneurs to help them achieve their goals and realise their potential.

We’re looking for people who have held senior management positions or have significant entrepreneurial experience, with a desire to make a difference in business.

  • Mentors: Mentors act as a general sounding board for a KickStart Entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs can bounce ideas and challenges off you to get advice about business model iteration as well as general advice and support. You will also be able to signpost them to other options they may not have considered and introduce them to networks.
  • Strategic Coaches: A Strategic Coach assists a KickStart entrepreneur to create strategic objectives and goals to drive the overall performance of their business. Through monthly check-ins, you will help monitor their progress towards achieving these objectives, motivating them and holding them accountable along the way.
  • Finance Coaches: A Finance Coach assists an entrepreneur who has received funding through KickStart, providing advice on areas such as bookkeeping, cash flow management, budgeting, and projections. You may also be able to advise those entrepreneurs who are seeking funding for the first time.
