Business mentoring is an indispensable tool that helps entrepreneurs to reach their full potential. Did you know that 73% of businesses who are mentored survive their first five years of operations? 


Benefitting from the personal and professional experience of a mentor means:

  • Beeing things differently and gaining new perspectives;

  • Pushing your thought process further and imagining new avenues;

  • Preventing hasty or uninformed decision-making;

  • Setting objectives, measuring them and reaching them;

  • Sharing “highs and lows” and playing down challenging situations.


The SADC Mentor Team is comprised of experienced business professionals who contribute to the success of young entrepreneurs. In their dyad, members of the SADC des Laurentides Mentor Cell advocate honest communication where no one is judged and everyone keeps an open mind, all of which is fundamental to the process.
