Propel Mentor/Protege Program

The Propel Mentor/Protégé Program is a business growth initiative that matches successful second- to fourth-stage businesses with smaller beginning- and first-stage businesses.

Following a two-year model, Propel Mentors help “first stage” businesses with between $100,000 and $1 million in revenue (Protégés) build capacity, improve financial literacy, and improve general business acumen.

Applications for the Propel class must be received no later than Friday, March 25, 2016.
