Why become a mentor

Give back to your community

As a volunteer mentor, you can use your skills to help a new generation of small businesses and nonprofits to survive and thrive.


Mentoring sessions last just one hour and are all online. There’s also no minimum commitment - you decide how much or how little to mentor. Schedule meetings at times that suit you.

Gain new skills

Mentoring small businesses and hosting Masterclasses and Workshops gives you transferable skills that make you a better manager, communicator, and team member.

Grow your network

Meet and get inspired by enthusiastic entrepreneurs from a range of industries and countries.

How it Works

Becoming a Digital Boost Business Mentor is quick and easy. You can join on your own terms and volunteer on a schedule that works for you.

Start mentoring in three easy steps:


Tell us about yourself

We’ll ask you to fill in a quick form so we can get to know you and find out a bit about your skills and experience.


Let us know how often you’d like to volunteer

Tell us the approximate number of hours you’d like to contribute each month. You can change this at any time!


Accept requests whenever you can help

We’ll find small organisations that would love to learn from you and you’ll get details of each request via email and your dashboard. Simply accept the request and your session will be confirmed! If you can’t help in that instance, don’t worry, we’ll connect the founders with someone else who can help.
