Briefly in English

Business mentors

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 longer relationship where both parties learn from each other. Mentoring is free of charge for entrepreneurs.

Business mentoring in Ostrobothnia is administered by The Regional Organisation of Enterprises in Coastal Ostrobothnia (Federation of Finnish Enterprises, Suomen Yrittäjät).

Please contact the coordinator Maija Aarnio, maija.aarnio(at) for more information.

There are over 1000 business mentors in Finland. More information about the national network: minna.jarvinen(at)
