Approved for participation in the Department of Defense (DoD) Mentor-Protégé Program, STEMBoard is proud to continue its track record of delivering innovations to the warfighter in a timely and efficient manner.
The DoD Mentor-Protégé Program is the pre-eminent program within the Federal government for the transformation of a small business firm with high potential to a firm able to perform well as a prime contractor or subcontractor. Established in 1991, the program helps small disadvantaged businesses (Protégés) compete for prime and subcontract awards by partnering with large companies (Mentors) under individual, project-based agreements. The program is a way to share best practices, enhance skill sets, technology and opportunities for small businesses.
As of February 2015, there were 66 active Protégé Agreements within the Department of Defense.
