ESB Mentor-Protégé Program

The CDOT ESB Mentor-Protégé Program provides opportunities for ESBs to hone their business skills by working closely with established firms in highway construction or professional services. The program helps CDOT (and the transportation industry in general) build a more effective and diverse consultant base.

Congratulations to our 2018 Teams!

AECOM - Bechtolt Engineering

Apex Design - Eugene Lynne

Atkins - Hg Consult

Parsons - Goodbee & Associates

RockSol Consulting Group - Cirque Civil

Weeminuche Construction Authority - Medved Global

The ESB Mentor-Protégé Program is open to both contractors and consultants in highway construction and professional services. CDOT does not match mentors and protégés; firms are responsible for identifying and forming a team and applying to CDOT for formal approval. 

Approved mentor-protégé teams must identify the goal(s) of the relationship and create a plan to achieve the identified goal(s). Mentor-protégé teams will be responsible for managing and tracking progress against the plan by providing quarterly update surveys to CDOT.
