In English

Business mentors are a group of voluntary persons who are willing to share their expertise and experiences with other entrepreneurs.

Although business mentors will share their thoughts and opinions, the final decision of any action is always taken by the entrepreneur. A true mentorship is not about occasional help or answering quick questions but a relationship where both parties learn from each other.

Business mentoring in Helsinki Metropolitan area is administered by the Metropolitan Business Mentors association (Pääkaupunkiseudun Yrityskummit ry). There are over 1200 business mentors in Finland and over 70 in the Metropolitan area.
