Joint Venture Program

The All Small Mentor-Protégé Program

The All Small Mentor-Protégé Program (ASMPP) was established in 2016 to extend SBA approved mentor-protégé relationships to every small business. This dynamic program seeks to develop strong protégé firms through mentor-provided business development assistance, and to help them successfully compete for government contracts. Rather than creating separate programs for each constituency (Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses, Women Owned Small Businesses, Historically Underutilized Business Zones) the SBA created one all-inclusive program. This new program was modeled after the successful SBA 8(a) Mentor-Protégé Program.
