Jargon PR CEO Simon Corbett

British Library appoints Jargon PR CEO as growth mentor

The British Library has selected Jargon PR CEO Simon Corbett to be one of its “Innovating for Growth” mentors.

Having benefitted from The British Library’s business resources himself over the past seven years, Corbett will offer advice, guidance and one-to-one support to small business owners, entrepreneurs and investors.

The mentoring scheme forms part of the UK Business and IP Centre’s Innovating for Growth programme, which supports businesses that have been identified as “ready to grow”.

The programme has supported over 250 businesses in the past four years, with 70% of them increasing turnover or taking on extra staff within 12 months of completing it.

Corbett said: “When starting a new business venture, the most valuable support you receive is from other business owners who have been in the same position as you. I’m really looking forward to working with new entrepreneurs and providing the same much-needed support and guidance I received when I was on the programme.”
