Free Mentorship for Jewellery Startups and Young Retailers


Are you about to launch or have you recently opened a retail jewellery store?

Do you have many operational and general questions and not quite sure how to get them answered. Finding your time poor and getting stuck in all the 'other things' and not able to work on the business to market and promote it? Feeling a little overwhelmed?

Swim and the Nationwide Buying Group have formed a partnership to help new Startups achieve success with a Startup Knowledge Exchange program.

The program gives new business owners and young retailers the opportunity to learn from others first hand who are already successfully managing a jewellery related business or who have a wealth of knowledge in business. Acting as a knowledge exchange the new business person gains access to a panel of experienced jewellery retailers and business people, answering questions and providing mentorship.

The Knowledge Exchange is a free program and has been created to help ensure the success of new businesses to the retail jewellery industry, and help them pave a way long into the future.

The program is open to anyone who is about to launch a business or has opened a jewellery retail business within the last 12 months and who has not owned a jewellery store before. The program continues for the first two years of trading.

The Startup Knowledge Exchange is accepting applications now. To apply or learn more, go to
