Once accepted onto the New Enterprise Allowance (NEA) a participant is matched with a volunteer business mentor who will provide advice and support from the first stages of business plan development, through start-up and into the early months of trading. The business mentor is there to provide guidance on all aspects of business start-up that will help make the NEA participant's new business a success. New Enterprise Allowance partnerships are also responsible for drawing together other sources of business advice and support for participants, to ensure that they and their business mentor have access to all the information they might need.
