Sue-Schweim-Tellier.jpgMichael Rogers, communications officer for the Small Business Association of Michigan, talks with Sue Tellier, owner of JetCo Solutionsin Grand Rapids, about the new SBA mentor-protégé program. The Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 and the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 provided authority for the Small Business Administration to establish mentor-protégé programs for all small businesses.


Rather than creating separate programs for each constituency – Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses, Women Owned Small Businesses, Historically Underutilized Business Zones - the SBA chose to create a single, all-inclusive mentor-protégé program modeled on the successful mentor-protégé program available to participants in its 8(a) program.
