Philip Molden Aug 19 2008

As a sponsor in MentorMagic , The Disc Directory wishes all the contestants the best of luck in the final heat of MentorMagic which takes place on 4 September at the University of Portsmouth Business School from 5.45pm.

The chosen presenters are Butlers2go, Computer Assets, Nitenumbers and E-Lifestyle.

The four companies will present to the entrepreneurs who include Colin Potter, who built Uniworld from a back bedroom to £24m turnover before selling three years ago, Denise Bryant, who built Integris before selling to global IT company Magirus, Paul Barry-Walsh, Chief Executive of The Fredericks Foundation famous for lending money to new business ventures and Nicola Youern, the Chief Executive who has led Southern Focus Trust to becoming one of the South's top charities.

So far this year, eight companies have gained free mentoring as a result of putting their pressing business issues to a panel of successful entrepreneurs, and a further four have been selected for this, the last opportunity in 2008.

The audience comprises business people and those studying how to build a company and tickets are available from the Chamber .
