Mentor and protégé firms enter into an SBA-approved written agreement outlining the protégé’s needs and describing the assistance the mentor has committed to providing. The protégé’s servicing district office evaluates the agreement according to the provisions contained in 13 CFR 124.520. SBA conducts annual reviews to determine the success of the mentor-protégé relationship.

To apply for the program, contact your SBA District Office.
