The Mentor

12 weeks, £5,000 and an hour a week with Ric Lewis. What would you do?

Businessman Ric Lewis and David ‘Sideman’ Whitely have teamed up in “The Mentor”, in which Ric helps three young rising stars from underrepresented communities and under-resourced backgrounds achieve their personal and business dreams.

Ric personally mentors the budding entrepreneurs over 12 weeks, drawing on his +30-year career in business and giving them £5,000 each in seed funding to kick-start their ambitions. Sideman is the voice of the series, weaving together the stories with humour and warmth, and undertaking his own journey with Ric.
