Reply To: I have my own consulting business which I have been full time with for 5 months offering services in design, project management, research and innovation. Things have been going well until COVID-19.As work has tried up, I am now looking to pivot a bit and get some business ideas I have off the ground. I need help with networking, finding any funding and grants as well as mentoring.

Hi Andy, thank you for your reply. I am looking for a business mentor to help guide some of my next steps and network with the appropriate people as I look to evaluate some business ideas and get something launched. I am also looking for advice on the best government grants to apply for to help get my business launched.

The business idea I have is an ecommerce food website (which I know is flooded now), but this concept has a real point of difference which I have not found yet.
