The fourth session of the Green Bay Packers Mentor-Protégé Program is underway with seven matched pairs of participants. The program matches established mentor companies that can provide technical, managerial, financial or other guidance to protégés seeking to improve their competitive standing.

The program’s partnerships aim to foster business growth, economic development and job creation in Brown County and the surrounding area.

Additionally, the program will be recognizing the participants from the third session at an event, May 29, in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

Participants have demonstrated success in growing their businesses, including an increase in revenue and net profits, and number of clients. The participants also have increased the number of full- and part-time employees at an average of more than two per company.

The program is administered by AFF Research LLC (AFFR).
