SBA Mentor Protégé Program

September 4 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Your small business can learn from an experienced government contractor through SBA’s Mentor-Protégé program.

Protégés can get valuable business development help from their mentors in several areas, including:

  • Guidance on internal business management systems, accounting, marketing, manufacturing, and strategic planning
  • Financial assistance in the form of equity investments, loans, and bonding
  • Assistance navigating federal contract bidding, acquisition, and the federal procurement process
  • Education about international trade, strategic planning, and finding markets
  • Business development, including strategy and identifying contracting and partnership opportunities
  • General and administrative assistance, like human resource sharing or security clearance support

A mentor and its protégé can joint venture as a small business for any small business contract, provided the protégé individually qualifies as small. The joint venture may also pursue any type of  set-aside contract  for which the protégé qualifies, including contracts set aside for 8(a)service-disabled veteran-ownedwomen-owned, and HUBZone businesses. Visit the Joint Venture program page more information.

Presentator: William Pocan, Economic Development Specialist – U.S. Small Business Administration/Richmond District Office
