I have been really surprised by the value of the experience for me. It has pushed me to think more seriously about what I could potentially achieve and given me a way forward with support.
The Barclays Eagle Lab, situated at the Digital Greenhouse, launched in 2018 to help small businesses and entrepreneurs to create, innovate and grow.
We’ve helped a number of businesses take their first steps and grow their existing client base. As part of our 1-2-1 mentoring sessions, the Eagle labs look to understand the concept of each business, use strategic management tools to set key performance indicators and facilitate connection opportunities.

Here’s what previous entrepreneur mentees have said about their experience:
I had no expectations of outcomes when I first approached the Eagle Lab mentor, but he quickly understood my proposition and who to connect me to within Barclays and outside. Those connections have already generated positive outcomes. I had no idea of the breadth of support businesses / entrepreneurs can gain from the mentoring.
What I still don’t really understand is how I get all this help and support for free.
The Eagle Lab mentoring service has been instrumental in moving my business forward.
The mentor patiently listened, offered wise advice and has given me the confidence to drive the business forward even when it has felt like wading through treacle.
His enthusiasm is infectious, his prompt follow-up, business acumen and directed meetings have been so helpful and I look forward to each meeting we put in the diary.
