“Mentoring puts female entrepreneurs on the path towards becoming leaders”, panel concludes


Notwithstanding the external factors limiting female business owners from reaching their full potential, professional mentoring can put them on a quicker path towards becoming leaders, concluded the panel of speakers at the ‘Entrepreneurial Mentoring: Local experiences and needs’ panel discussion last week.

Organised by Ascend Consulting as part of the annual Europe-wide Startup Week and supported by APS Bank, the discussion focused on the support currently being provided to young entrepreneurs.

Stephanie Attard, Manager at APS Bank’s Commercial Business Unit, spoke about how mentoring fosters a culture of sharing of skills, helping mentees make better business decisions while giving potential business owners access to networks. This ultimately increases their chances of being financed by banks and other institutions.

APS Bank provides support to many businesses, “helping those who have great ideas get there by believing in their abilities and potential”. Expressing confidence in the idea that “mentoring can help break the glass ceiling for more women to become business leaders”, Stephanie also reiterated APS Bank’s commitment to making entrepreneurial mentoring more of a familiar concept with a wider segment of the Maltese society.
