How are Protégés matched with Mentors?

The Mentor Protégé Committee will review applications seeking to participate in the Mentor Protégé Program. After the review, approved Mentors and approved Protégés will be notified and the firm’s information with NAICS Code(s) will be listed on the Business Highway website to encourage development of a Mentor Protégé relationship. The Mentor or the Protégé will communicate their interest in forming the Mentor Protégé relationship that will benefit both firms. Vendors (mentors and protégés) may also form a relationship then submit their applications to the County for approval and enrollment in the program.
