As part of the City and County of Denver’s commitment to help expand the capacity of minority and women-owned businesses (MWBEs), the city has created the Citywide Mentor-Protégé Program to help address some of the challenges faced by small firms as they pursue city contracting opportunities.
Through mentorship, MWBEs can learn from larger firms and develop the necessary skills to help scale their businesses. Through this program selected firms - mentors and protégés - gain valuable educational and networking opportunities, while interacting with participating city agencies.
The city does not match mentors and proteges--you must self-select your partner and submit one joint application. Pairings selected to participate must be committed to dedicating time and resources to successfully achieve goals outlined in their development plan.
