Mentor Protege Program


The Mentor Protégé Program is one of the programs and services provided by the Small Business Development Unit. In partnership with the Womens Pumps Pull Heels Balamasa On Solid Pink Shoes High 61dxY1wqS, its purpose is to further the development of certified Black Boot Meucci Women's Yossi Micro Sesto Fabric awI7tqwO firms by providing training and assistance from other firms so that the small businesses may:

  • Move into non-traditional areas of work
  • Compete in the marketplace outside the DBE program
  • Develop their capacity to compete on projects

Why mentoring?

Mentoring is a business-to-business relationship that allows firms to share their expertise and resources to further their business objectives and create a stronger economy with a more competitive business environment. Networking and cultivating relationships between larger and smaller firms allows both to learn, evolve, and compete on MAC/Met Council/MnDOT/MPLS projects and in new markets. The Mentor Protégé program is designed to increase the statewide capacity and availability of DBEs and help develop relationships that foster DBE participation on projects. Prime contractors benefit by receiving credit to partner with DBE firms, and DBEs receive assistance in developing their business.

  • Business planning
