The Packers Mentor-Protégé Program was established in 2011 to pair emerging minority-, woman- and veteran-owned companies (protégés) with established, knowledgeable and committed companies that can provide technical, managerial, and financial or other guidance to protégés seeking to improve their competitive standing.
Much success has been realized through the six previous sessions, with more than 100 full and part-time jobs created and an average revenue growth of approximately 250 percent by the participating companies.
