The Green Bay Packers Mentor-Protégé Program

Mentor-Protégé Program

The Green Bay Packers Mentor-Protégé Program pairs emerging businesses (protégés) with established, knowledgeable and committed companies (mentors) to help provide exposure, resources and guidance in order to reach the next level of business growth.

The program, administered by the Packers and AFF Research, LLC, aims to create relationships between mentors and protégés that are mutually beneficial.

Mentor and protégé companies are expected to participate in program events and presentations, as well as meet monthly with their paired business during their time in the program. Through these activities, protégé companies can become empowered to pursue their business goals, and mentor companies can take an active role in enhancing the northeastern Wisconsin business community.

Prospective applicants

The program focuses on businesses owned by minorities, women, veterans, service-disabled veterans or disabled persons. However, other regional small businesses are encouraged to apply. The program is currently seeking more mentors and protégés for the 2015 session. For testimonials from past participants and to apply for the program, please visit www.affresearch.com/mentor-protege/.

After applying, mentor and protégé applicants will be contacted by the program regarding next steps about pairing with another area business

Questions and requests for paper applications should be directed to AFF Research by telephone at 920-884-5006 or by e-mail.

  • Mentors:
    • Mentors must be established companies of good character, with a willingness to commit to the program. They must be able to provide valuable resources to meet the developmental needs of a protégé company. Qualified mentors will have a senior level officer willing to provide feedback and meet regularly with the assigned protégé, as well as attend quarterly meetings and other program events.

  • Protégés:
