We believe in providing access to quality, best practice mentoring programs to assist our businesses to grow.

Start, Sprint, Surge, Sustain - our program is tailored for each different stage of business.

Sometimes all you need is a little guidance. Whether you are starting out in your career, making changes to your business or wanting to scale your business globally having a mentor to guide you is invaluable.

The Canning Business Mentoring Program sponsors a number of participants to further develop themselves and their business at each different stage of business - Start, Sprint, Surge and Sustain. We sponsor the cost of each successful mentee and facilitate the connection between the applicant and the agency providing the best mentoring opportunity. Partner agencies manage the application and screening process as there are specific qualifying criteria associated with each program.

You must be either a resident AND/OR a business owner/operator in the City of Canning to qualify for the Canning Business Mentoring Program (except for the YoungGems® Program).

You choose. You commit.

  • You choose which program you want to participate in.

  • There’s no cost to you, but you need to commit fully to the time involved which varies depending on the program you apply for.
