Mentor Protégé Program

The County Mentor Protégé Program was brought about through a partnership with the Associated General Contractors (AGC) and the Small, Minority, Women and Veteran Business Enterprise (SMWVBE) office of Bexar County.

The Mentor/Protégé relationship is a two year commitment where the protégé, their mentors, AGC, and the County Mentor Protégé Program Manager work together to help develop the protégé firm's marketing, operations, and financial performance strategy.

The program exists to build effective working relationships between leaders of mature established companies and locally owned small companies so that newer companies can benefit from the knowledge and experience of established firms. Seven classes have been held between 2005 and 2012 with a total of 85 companies completing the program.

Protégés must have graduated from the AGC/County Construction Basics Training Program before consideration.
