How CDOT's Mentor-Protege Program Works

 Program Logistics

Teams self-pair to create a partnership lasting 1-2 calendar years. To apply, Teams evaluate the Protégé's business needs, identify mutually beneficial goals, and create a plan to make progress against them, with the ultimate goal of building the Protégé's capacity to compete on CDOT contracts.

If selected, Teams meet and collaborate throughout the year as they navigate the program as a cohort. They meet regularly with the Team Liaison to report on milestones, obstacles, and changes.
