About the All Small Mentor-Protégé Program

The Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 and the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 provided authority for the Small Business Administration to establish mentor-protégé programs for all small businesses. Rather than creating separate programs for each constituency – Service Disabled Veteran Owned BusinessesWomen Owned Small BusinessesHistorically Underutilized Business Zones - the SBA chose to create a single, all-inclusive mentor-protégé program modeled on the successful mentor-protégé program available to participants in its 8(a) program.

The purpose of the new program is to develop strong protégé firms through mentor-provided business development assistance, and to help protégés successfully compete for government contracts. Mentor-provided assistance can be sought for any, or all of the following activities:

  • Management and Technical Assistance
    Internal business management systems; accounting processes; marketing and business/strategic planning assistance; technology transfers; and manufacturing assistance.
     
  • Financial Assistance
    In the form of equity investments and/or loans; and bonding.
     
  • Contracting Assistance
    Contracting processes; capabilities; acquisitions; and performance.
     
  • Trade Education
    International Trade business and strategic planning; finding markets; and learning how to export.
     
  • Business Development Assistance
    Strategy; and identifying contracting and partnership opportunities.
     
  • General and/or Administrative Assistance
    Business processes and support; human resource sharing; security clearance support; and capacity building.
