Mentor-Protégé Program Summit 2024

July 3, 2024

Join the Department of Defense (DoD) Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP), in collaboration with the Michigan Alliance of APEX Accelerators, for its Mentor-Protégé Program Summit, July 29 – Aug. 1, 2024.

At the Summit, attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • Immerse themselves in learning through discussions, workshops, and keynote speeches by government, industry, and academia experts
  • Discover invaluable resources and strategies to foster partnerships between mentoring firms and small business proteges
  • Build partnerships and strengthen resilience in the defense industrial base
  • Connect with major primes and key individuals from government, industry, and academia which could potentially lead to a partnership agreement for the Mentor-Protégé Program

The DOD Mentor-Protégé Program (MPP) helps eligible small businesses enhance their capabilities and expand their footprint in the defense industrial base. Small businesses are partnered with larger companies to help enhance their capabilities to perform as subcontractors and viable suppliers under DoD contracts, other federal government, and commercial contracts.
