We are excited about the University of Florida’s 2023 Mentor Protégé Program!

With our efforts to help create a pool of available and qualified small businesses who can provide products and services to meet the needs of the institution, we are effective working relationships between mature established firms (mentors) and small businesses at different stages interested in working with UF (proteges). In addition, we have created an evolving curriculum to offer insight, knowledge, and direction from UF departments with the goal that proteges will learn how to successfully navigate the institution.


This structured curriculum (modules) will be offered to our protégé participants in-person and on a monthly-basis throughout the 2023 calendar year. To support our efforts, we extend an invitation for your firm to participate a program sponsor. All contributions will be used for the functioning of the Mentor Protégé Program.
