Mowgli Foundation – Supporting Entrepreneurs

A British organisation that mentors entrepreneurs in the Middle East is now turning its attention to Manchester and the North West. The Mowgli Foundation, founded by serial entrepreneur Tony Bury, is keen to recreate its successes on home turf. Tony Bury attended Manchester University and Manchester Business School and has built up several successful businesses. He now uses his resources and expertise to support people across the world to emulate his success.

“It is important to harness entrepreneurial potential and help create businesses that provide the goods and services that we all need as well as much needed employment opportunities, particularly in the current economic climate. In the Middle East we have helped individuals build a food distribution company, a software house and rock climbing business. They all create wealth and help entrepreneurs improve everyone’s standard of living”.

Manchester is nothing like Amman or Damascus, but the imperatives are the same. Harnessing the skills and knowledge of business leaders, the Mowgli Foundation pairs these experienced mentors with entrepreneurs who benefit from their support. The whole process is voluntary and is managed by Mowgli. A mentoring relationship is created which can be incredibly rewarding for both parties. Lasting for a year, the main purpose of the relationship is to support the entrepreneur through the early stages of establishing a successful new business or in scaling their existing business.

The programme in Manchester is going to commence from 26th to 29th November when 9 mentees are paired with nine mentors. It is supported by leading leadership development charity, Common Purpose, and Manchester Business School. Mowgli is seeking both suitable business leaders and aspiring entrepreneurs to take part.

About the Mowgli Foundation
The Mowgli Foundation is a not for profit, international mentoring organisation. It was established to make a difference to business start ups and aspiring entrepreneurs the world over, often in less developed economies. We use the power of mentoring, and match mentors with mentees across the globe, to promote economic stability and ultimately to alleviate poverty. Our first programme was in Jordan in April 2009.
