Our mission is simple – to make business mentorship and personalised support easily available to all small businesses and charities. We’re combining the power of technology with the kindness of people to make that happen.
Digital Boost, owned by the charity Founders4Schools, was founded in 2020 in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis. We wanted to help small businesses and knew that many others did too.
Starting and running a small business can be a hard and sometimes lonely road. Finding the right support can be overwhelming and restrictive.
We set out to make that journey easier by creating a new type of small business mentoring and support that’s tailored, flexible and free for all.
We’ve built a community of thousands of volunteer mentors who are experts in digital marketing, sales, finance, HR and much more.
Our smart technology platform easily matches entrepreneurs to the most relevant business mentors, content and learning for the specific business challenges they’re facing in the moment.
Mentoring is held 1:1 or in small groups and focused on specific business challenges, because when you’re facing a challenge, personalised guidance from someone who knows their stuff can make all the difference.
Flexibility is at the heart of everything we do. Small businesses & charities can connect with as many different mentors as they want, when it works for them. Volunteers commit just one hour at a time, on their terms.
We are joined by incredible partners who share our belief that small businesses and charities are vital to our economy and communities. Thanks to their support, all our services are completely free and open to any small business or charity.
To date, our platform has brought together thousands of people to learn and grow. But we’re just getting started, because small organisations need our help now more than ever.
