The Green Bay Packers Mentor-Protégé Program is set to host its next training camp session Wednesday, Aug. 28, at 8:30 a.m. on the fourth floor of the Lambeau Field Atrium.
The session will feature a panel discussion with local business leaders who will introduce participants to accessible financing options for small businesses. The panel will help provide guidance to small business owners and help determine the best routes to accommodate their financial needs, from loans and grants to venture capital, crowdfunding and angel investors.
Attendees may enter at the American Family Insurance Gate and proceed to the Legends Club on the fourth floor of the Atrium. Following the presentation, the event will allow for question-and-answer opportunities, as well as time for networking and informal discussion.
The Packers Mentor-Protégé Program is now in its ninth session, but those who are interested in the program and may apply in the future are encouraged to attend the event. To learn more about the program, please visit packers.com/mentorprotege.
The Packers Mentor-Protégé Program was established to pair emerging companies in northeastern Wisconsin with established, knowledgeable, and committed companies that can provide exposure, training, resources and experience. The program places an emphasis on minority- or woman-owned small businesses, as well as veteran-owned, service-disabled veteran-owned and disabled persons-owned companies, but other companies are also considered. The program aims to foster relationships between area companies and business professionals in order to spark economic development and job creation. The Packers work with AFF Research, LLC, to administer the program.
