Entrepreneur James Blake Joins Virgin as StartUp Mentor 

The entrepreneur from Belfast is the newest addition to StartUp Mentoring, a programme exclusively run by Virgin to support StartUp companies with expert advice and workshops. Each Virgin StartUp-funded company gets paired with a relevant expert mentor for six months of continuous mentoring support as part of the programme.

Speaking to us about the new and exciting appointment, James told us, “I am delighted to have been invited to be on the StartUp Mentor panel from Virgin. I will share my experiences  in business and marketing knowledge with my matched StartUps. I will mentor innovative and ambitious talent within a similar industry to my own to give the mentees the most value possible, which is very exciting.

I believe having a mentor is one of the most valuable things you can do when starting your journey as an entrepreneur, so I think this programme will be highly beneficial for the mentees. I look forward to meeting my matched StartUps and to hearing their new ideas.”

Every entrepreneur that receives a Virgin start-up loan is enrolled in the mentoring programme, entitling them to a year’s worth of mentoring support free of charge. Applications are currently open to receive the support.
