Mentor-Protégé Program

M-P Start 2018_edit

The County Mentor-Protégé Program was brought about through a partnership with the Associated General Contractors (AGC) and the Bexar County Small Business & Entrepreneurship Department.
 
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. Ten classes have been held between 2005 and 2016 with a total of 138 companies completing the program.
