Mentor Protégé Program
Technica participates in the Small Business Administration (SBA) Mentor Protégé program by mentoring Onyx Consulting, LLC, an 8(a) company located in Hanover, Maryland. The Mentor Protégé Agreement between Technica and Onyx is approved by the SBA.
The Mentor Protégé program encourages the growth of small business concerns by partnering them with established larger businesses to provide guidance in the development of technical and business capabilities. Technica graduated from the SBA 8(a) Business Development program in 2007 and we use the experience gained from our successful growth as a business to further Onyx’s goals as its business matures.
Benefits of the program include:
