My experience with the ORT JET mentorship program has been instrumental in growing both my business and myself over the last few years. While I was initially looking for immediate answers and advice, through our sessions I quickly learned how to use structured thinking and techniques to make these decisions myself. It has been so helpful to have a constant, positive figure through times full of change and uncertainty – the return on the time spent in mentor sessions has been exponential and accelerated our progress.

It has brought me sense of security whilst building my business.”

“As a mentor for ORT JET, it has become apparent to me that practical experience, a shoulder to lean on and simply being available to validate an idea is an important as assisting someone with accurate costing assumptions or developing a strategic plan. I have benefited from interacting with motivated and energetic entrepreneurs who have given me as much satisfaction from being able to fulfil this role as i have hopefully given them”
