Mentro Initiative

by | Oct 2, 2023

This initiative offers a series of training programmes over the life of the
scheme to support groups of individuals who share the same interest, in
order to develop a business idea or respond to a challenge.
As part of the programme, successful candidates receive weekly sessions
with business experts focusing on aspects such as marketing, financial
management, and attracting customers.
As well as expert support, the participants also receive £1000 in financial
support to develop their business idea. There is also the added opportunity
for one individual within each cohort to win an additional £1,000 in a
competition at the end of each training programme.
This initiative also focuses on the challenges that exist within the ARFOR
area, such as:
 How do we keep young people in the ARFOR area?
 How do you add value through the Welsh language?
 How could value be added to local resources and assets?
Do you want to start or develop a new business?
