Did you know that the State of Florida has a Mentor-Protégé Program? The State of Florida’s Mentor-Protégé Program helps small businesses by offering help to small businesses getting started from experienced and established businesses. Florida’s Mentor-Protégé Program is administered by Florida’s Office of Supplier Diversity (OSD). It involves an established business owner mentoring certified woman-, veteran- or minority business owner. Through this program, small business owners are able to better understand procurement activities.
The OSD doesn’t just randomly match businesses together of course. The Office of Supplier Diversity actually works with the businesses to make sure that they are matched appropriately. They look at the business’s strengths and needs. The protégés in this program will learn a lot and mentor will gain satisfaction and a bigger network. If you choose to sign up for the State of Florida’s Mentor-Protégé Program, you will be asked about your skills, strengths and needs. After you’ve been matched with an appropriate mentor or protégé, you will work together to build and accomplish your own goals.
To learn more about the Mentor-Protégé Program, you can just contact the Office of Supplier Diversity’s Vendor Relations Coordinator. The phone number is 850-487-0915. To learn more about the requirements for participating in this program offered through the State of Florida, click here.
