Business Mentoring for Entrepreneurs and Business Owners - SGI Lab

SGI Lab combines business mentoring, business coaching and business consulting uniquely.

80% of startups fail within the first two years.  They didn't fail because the business was bad.  They failed because they didn't research the market and their competitors thoroughly enough. A lack of quality market information results in a weak business strategy and poor execution.

SGI Lab helps you to address the fundamental issues of why businesses fail to ensure your business is set up for success.

Good advice is crucial for your business development.  Statistics prove that businesses that seek professional advice are more profitable and successful.  To help you get on the right track, we have launched a new way for entrepreneurs to access business mentoring and support.

SGI Lab Members get access to our premium tools & content; they can join our 1-2-1 business mentoring program and access all of our business support channels.

Instead of solving your business problems yourself, you can seek advice and support from experienced business mentors and our network of partners.

What Our Business Mentors Provide

A business mentor provides an outside perspective and can help you assess your business skills. They can help you set goals and give you the tools you need to achieve them.
