Mentoring for Growth (M4G) offers eligible businesses free access to volunteer business experts who provide insights, options and suggestions relating to challenges and opportunities you are experiencing in your business.

The M4G program includes:

When you participate in the M4G program, the Queensland Government matches its mentors' expertise and experience with the business challenge or opportunity you have identified.

Mentors are drawn from a Queensland-wide pool of more than 600 active and registered mentors. All mentors have expertise and experience in coaching and developing businesses.

Mentoring for Growth is delivered through both panel and chat formats and can be conducted via face-to-face and online meetings. The program is delivered in all major centres in Queensland, including Queensland Government small business events.

This guide explains how to register your interest in the free M4G program either as a business to be mentored, or as a volunteer business mentor.
