Mentrepreneurial (Ment+) is a programme designed by Richmond Foundation in collaboration with Malta Enterprise and Business 1st to equip business owners with the right tools to build more resilient minds to face the challenges brought about in the business environment by the Covid-19 pandemic. The project is being supported by The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry and the Malta Chamber of SMEs.

The current situation has brought unforeseeable challenges to the business world. Ones that require a step change in our thinking to adapt, re-engineer or have the courage to take a different direction in our business or profession.

Whatever our journey, mounting anxiety and stress can stall our ability to think clearly and snap into action. Ment+ is designed to help improve our mental fitness which is essential for our overall health and the success of our endeavours.
