The Kinaway Business Mentoring Program is a voluntary program that allows people to spend time with, and benefit from, the experience and knowledge of someone who will guide and encourage them in their business.

WHAT IS MENTORING?

The Kinaway Business Mentoring Program is a new program for Kinaway members to help them develop and grow their businesses through peer support and business guidance.

A mentor is an advisor and ‘sounding board’ who you can discuss ideas with and assess the viability of those ideas and it is generally a longer term relationship between the mentor and the mentee.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Kinaway Business Mentoring Program is a new program for Kinaway members to help them develop and grow their businesses through peer support.

Kinaway members are eligible to receive mentoring support from the mentors listed in Kinaway’s mentor network. The mentor network is a combination of both Kinaway members who give their time to see other members succeed and non-members who may be experienced business mentors, business professionals and industry experts who are wanting to contribute to helping Aboriginal owned businesses thrive.

How it works?

As a Kinaway member you can apply to the mentoring program when a mentoring program round is open. We will ask you to answer a few questions to help us match you with a suitable mentor for your needs. The matching process will find the best match available from our mentor pool.

If you are matched with a mentor, Kinaway will facilitate an introduction to your new mentor and facilitate a structured program through your mentoring journey.  Kinaway members can browse the list of mentors to view the options of the mentors.

WHEN CAN I APPLY?

The Kinaway Mentoring Program is offered in cohorts or program rounds. A program round will open seeking applications from Mentees. Program cohorts may be focussed on different groups of members e.g. First Nations Female-led businesses.
